    (Try this: 7-8 yds are needed for the decrease rounds/rows. Measure this amount from yarn end, tie a knot to mark remaining amount for crown. There will certainly be enough to complete hat.)

    Hat (in the round)

    CO 88 sts. Join in the round, being careful not to twist stitches. (Try this: Cast on one extra stitch. When joining in the round for the first row, knit together the last cast on stitch with the first cast on stitch. This makes a firm join without the usual “gap”.)

    Place marker at beg of round.

    Next Rnd: *K2, p2; rep from * to marker.

    Continue with this pattern until the hat measures 8” for hat without cuff, or 11” for hat with cuff.

    Decrease Rounds (change to double-pointed needles when there are too few sts for circular needle)

    Rnd 1: *K2, p2tog; rep from * to marker. (66 sts)

    Rnd 2: *K2, p1; rep from * to marker.

    Rnd 3: *K2tog, p1; rep from * to marker. (44 sts)

    Rnd 4: *K1, p1; rep from * to marker.

    Rnd 5: K2tog for complete round to marker. (22 sts)

    Rnd 6: K to marker.

    Break yarn, leaving a 10” tail. Thread tail through remaining sts and pull tightly. Secure to keep crown tight. Weave in all ends.
