Okie-doke, so this hat is a two-parter, and we're going to begin with the band, which is knit back and forth. Of course, I'm still using my circular needles, but that's a matter of personal preference.

ANYWAY, to knit the band you'll start by casting on 18 stitches with your main-color yarn. So we'll start with some notation, move on to a couple of set-up rows that include buttonholes, and then we'll get down to business.

Rows 1 - 4: using your first accent color, knit
Row 5: using your main color, knit to first marker, slip marker, and then k3. Next, * drop next stitch off of needle and unravel four rows down, until you've exposed the main color stitch below. Without picking stitch up on left-hand needle, insert right-hand needle through the front of stitch and straight through, behind the four unraveled rows above. Knit stitch, catching the loose strands in stitch; k3; rep from * until you reach second marker, slip marker, and knit to end of row
Row 6: using main color, knit
Rows 7 - 10: using your second accent color, knit
Row 11: using your main color, knit to first marker, slip marker, and then k1. Next, rep from * of Row 5, ending last repeat k1 instead of k3, and knitting the stitches between your second marker and your end-of-row marker, as you did before.
Row 12: using main color, knit
Rows 13 - 16: using your third accent color, knit
Rows 17 & 18: using main color, repeat rows 5 & 6
Rows 19 - 22: using your fourth accent color, knit
Rows 23: using main color, repeat row 11
After completing rows 1 - 23, you can remove your two additional stitch markers, and knit in your main color until piece measures roughly 6.5". And now it's time to begin the decreases!
