HAT:
First knit the headband, which is then sewn together at the center back. Then pick up stitches around the edge of the headband to knit the top of the hat.

HEAD BAND: With 1 strand of each yarn held together cast on 52 sts and establish pattern as follows:
1st row (WS): K1 (edge st knit in garter st throughout), P 5, K 3, P 3, Pattern 2 (= K3, P3, K4, P6, K2, P6, K4, P3, K3), P 5, K 1 (edge st knit in garter st throughout).

2nd row (RS): K 1, K 5, Pattern 2 (= P3, K3, P4, put 3 sts on st holder in back of work, K 3, K 3 from st holder, P2, put 3 sts on st holder in back of work, K 3, K 3 from st holder, P4, K3, P3), K 3, P 3, K 5, K 1.

Work pattern as established until piece measures approx. 54 - 56 cm - adjust so you finish after a whole or half repeat of the pattern. Bind off.

Sew together the headband at center back. Fold the outermost 6 sts at each side against the wrong side and stitch down (rolled edge).

Top: Pick up 120 sts on double-pointed needles on the inside of the rolled edge in the sts of the headband – but be sure the picked up sts are not visible from the right side.
Join and put 10 markers in work with 12 sts in between each marker. Knit stocking st. After 3 rows dec 1 st on the left side of every marker = 110 sts. Repeat decs every third row 4 times and then every other row 5 times = 20 sts.
Pull a double strand of yarn through the remaining sts and pull tight to close.
