See diagrams M.1 and M.2 - diagrams are worked in stockinette st.

Worked in the round on circular needle and then on double pointed needles.
Cast on 128 sts on circular needle size 2.5 mm / US 1or2 with off white. Work rib = K2/P2 for 3 cm / 1 1/8''.
Switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4. K 1 round while at the same time dec 8 sts evenly = 120 sts. Then work diagram M.1, then diagram M.2. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When diagram M.2 has been worked, there are 32 sts on needle and piece measures approx. 23 cm / 9'' vertically.
Work with off white until finished. First work 1 round as follows: * K 2, K 2 tog *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 24 sts.
On next round, K2 tog around = 12 sts.
Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.
The hat measures approx. 24 cm / 9½'' vertically.
