Free Simple Hat Knitting Pattern

I have received many compliments on this hat (and just as many requests to make them).  But it is really so simple that even a novice could have success.  You will need size 7 circular and double pointed needles and a yarn needle.  The key to knitting up this hat so quickly is using Lion Brand Baby's First which is a bulky cotton-blend yarn.



Cast on 72
K2P2 for 12 rounds
P 2 rounds
K 10 rounds
Begin decrease:
K7, K2tog (repeat to end)
K
K6, K2tog (repeat to end)
K
K5, K2tog (repeat to end)
K
K4, K2tog (repeat to end)
K
K3, K2tog (repeat to end)
K2, K2tog (repeat to end)
K1, K2tog (repeat to end)
K2tog (repeat to end)
Using a yarn needle, run end of yarn through the last remaining stitches, pulling into the inside of the hat.  Secure the end of the yarn and cut the tail.
