HAT:
Worked in the round from bottom edge towards the top.
Cast on 84-96 sts with Nepal on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4. Work 10 rounds rib, P3/K3 – NOTE: Beg with P3. Work next round as follows: * P3, K1, 1 YO, K1, 1 YO, K2, P1, K2, 1 YO, K1, 1 YO, K1 *, repeat from *-* to end = 112-128 sts. Change to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8. Continue as follows: * P3, M.2 (K YO from previous round into back of loop to avoid a hole) *, repeat from *-* to end (= 7-8 repeats). Change to double pointed needles when sts no longer fit circular needle. After M.2 there are 42-48 sts on needle. On next round work all P3 tog to P1 = 28-32 sts. On next round K2 tog to end = 14-16 sts. Cut the thread and pull through remaining sts twice, tighten tog and fasten. The hat measures approx 24 cm / 9½".
