K 1 row, then work DOUBLE SEED ST - see explanation above - over all sts.
When piece measures 20-21 cm / 8"-8 1/4" (make sure that last row worked is from RS), work in GARTER ST - see explanation above - until finished measurements AT THE SAME TIME dec every 4th row as follows:
Row 4: Dec 16-18 sts evenly (= approx. every 5th st) = 64-70 sts on needle.
Row 8: Dec 13-14 sts (= approx. 5th st) = 51-56 sts.
Row 12: Dec 10-11 sts (= approx. 5th st) = 41-45 sts.
Row 16: Dec 9-9 sts (= approx. 5th st) = 32-36 sts.
Row 20: K 2 tog across = 16-18 sts.
Row 24: K 2 tog across = 8-9 sts.
Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts.
Sew hat tog mid back, edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.
Hat measures approx. 26-27 cm / 10 1/4"-10½".
Fasten yarn tightly.
