Bill's Hat

Bill's Hat

Here's an easy hat pattern for an adult. I knit this hat for my DH out of KnitPicks Wool of the Andes, about 2 skeins.The yarn is worsted weight-4.5-5 sts=1 inch on Size 6-9 needles. I used a 16 inch circular size 5 (3.75 mm) needle. Each skein is 110 yards, 50 grams. The hat is knit in the round. Double pointed needles are necessary for the last couple of rows.

Cast on 144 sts. Knit 2, Purl 2 for 9-10 inches. If you want to cast on fewer stitches remember to cast on a multiple of 4 stitches.
Decrease Round 1: K1, K2tog, P1 around.
Decrease Round 2: K2tog, P1 around.
Decrease Round 3: K2tog around. Repeat this round, changing to double points when necessary,
until there are 9 stitches left. Cut yarn and thread through remaining loops. Darn in ends. Fold up edge for warm ears.
ENJOY!
