Gauge: 6 st to 1 in over k1p1 ribbing
Gauge: 5 st to 1 in over stockinette

1. CO 132 st. Used long tail cast on with two color cast on (but only one color, to make it easier). PM every 11 st.

2. k1 p1 for 1.25 inches.

3. k6, p5 for two rounds.

REPEAT EVERY 11 st (for 3 repeats):

1. k6, p5

2. k6, p5

3. k6, p1, yo, p2tog, p2

4. k6, p5

5. k6, p2, yo, p2tog, p1

6. k6, p5

7. k6, p3, yo, p2tog

8. k6, p5

9. C3F [sl 3 st onto cable needle at front, k3, k3 from cable needle], p5

10. k6, p5

THEN: Repeat Row 1-8 from above just once, to prep for decrease row.

DECREASE (Repeat):

9. C3F, P5, k1, ssk, k2tog, k1, p5

10. k6, p5, ssk, k2tog, p5

11. k6, p4, ssk, k2tog, p4

12. k6, p3, ssk, k2tog, p3

13. k6, p2, ssk, k2tog, p2

16. k5, *(ssk, k2tog, k4 until last 3 st remain), ssk, k2tog

GUESSWORK FROM HERE, WILL FIRM UP STITCH COUNTS AFTER I GET MY HAT TO THAT POINT. HOPEFULLY I WILL FIGURE OUT THE DECREASES WHEN I’M ACTUALLY AT THAT POINT. THE ORIGINAL PATTERN CONFUSES ME, IT JUST SAYS TO CONTINUE AS ESTABLISHED. SIGH.

17. k3, *(ssk, k2tog, k2 until last 3 sts), ssk, k2tog

18. k1, *(ssk, k2tog until last 3 sts), ssk, k2tog

19. k2tog

20. Thread yarn through last 6 st to close.

ALTERNATIVE ROW 17 INSTRUCTIONS FROM ANOTHER RAVELER:

17. K3 ssk, k2tog, k2

18. k1 ssk, k2tog

ALTERNATIVE:

Row 17: slip 1 K2, ssk, K2 tog repeat
Row 18: ssk, k2tog repeat around
Row 19: k2tog around

FINAL NOTES: This hat is TOO WIDE, by about one cable repeat (the brim has an 11 inch diameter). Also, it’s about a half inch too short. Will fix the pattern and post the correction.
