The hat is worked sideways from mid back. Cast on 50-58 sts (includes 1 edge st in each side) with 2 strands Alpaca on needle size 3 mm / US 2or3. On first row (= RS) work rib as follows: 1 edge st (worked in stockinette st until finished measurements), * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-*, finish with 1 edge st (worked in garter st until finished measurements). Insert a marker at the end of 1st row = top of hat - See A in fig. 1 (bottom edge of hat = C in fig. 1 = at beg of 1st row). Note: fig. 1 shows then hat when it's been folded. Continue in rib with 1 edge st in each side like this until piece measures 26-27 cm / 10 1/4''-10½". Now insert another marker at the end of row from RS (= mid front - See B in fig. 1). Continue until piece measures 52-54 cm / 20½"-21'', finish with 1 row from RS. On next row (= WS) loosely bind off all sts with K over K and P over P, cut the yarn and keep 50-60 cm / 19 3/4''-23½" for assembly.
Fold the piece double, sew tog edges from RS mid back and on top of hat with stitches as follows: Sew from C to A and continue to D - See fig. 1 = approx. 2 cm / 3/4'' remain from B (mid front). Turn the piece inside out and sew a seam across the tip mid back, approx. 4 cm / 1½'' from A - See fig. 2, fold the tip down towards C and sew it to the seam mid back.
