Hat is worked in the round on circular needle, switch to double pointed needles when decreasing.

Cast on 78-81 stitches on circular needle size 5 mm with Air. Knit 1 round. Then work rib = knit 1/purl 2. When rib measures 4 cm, switch to circular needle size 7 mm and decrease 10-9 stitches evenly (i.e. work approx. every 7th and 8th stitch together in S/M and approx. every 8th and 9th stitch together in M/L) = 68-72 stitches. Continue in the round in stocking stitch. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 16-18 cm in total, decrease 4-8 stitches evenly = 64 stitches.
Then decrease as follows:
ROUND 1: Knit all stitches.
ROUND 2: * Knit 6, knit 2 together *, work from *-* 8 times in total = 56 stitches.
ROUND 3: Knit all stitches.
ROUND 4: * Knit 5, knit 2 together *, work from *-* 8 times in total = 48 stitches.
ROUND 5: Knit all stitches.
ROUND 6: * Knit 4, knit 2 together *, work from *-* 8 times in total = 40 stitches.
ROUND 7: Knit all stitches.
ROUND 8: * Knit 3, knit 2 together *, work from *-* 8 times in total = 32 stitches.
ROUND 9: Knit all stitches.
ROUND 10: * Knit 2, knit 2 together *, work from *-* 8 times in total = 24 stitches.
ROUND 11: Knit all stitches.
ROUND 12: Work all stitches together 2 by 2 = 12 stitches.
ROUND 13: Work all stitches together 2 by 2 = 6 stitches.
Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten together and fasten. Piece measures approx. 24-26 cm from top and down.
