Yarn: Cascade Yarns Cascade 220 Sport (100% Peruvian Highland Wool; 164 yards [150 meters]/50 grams); #8891 Cyan Blue - one skein (color A) & #9421 Blue Hawaii - one skein (color B)

Needles: One 16" circular needle in size US 6, one 16" circular needle in size US 5, and one set of double pointed needles (dpns), also in size US 6

Notions: Tapestry needle, stitch marker

Gauge: 22 stitches = 4 inches on size 6 needles

So let's make a hat! First, then, using your size 5 needle and your color A yarn, cast on 114 stitches, place marker, and join in round. Then we'll work the following ribbing row:

Ribbing Row: using color A, * k3, p3; rep from *

Knit this ribbing row until piece measures roughly 2". Transfer work to your size 6 needle and knit one transition row, as follows:

Transition Row: using color A, knit

Knit this row once, and then we'll switch to our main pattern, which is just a simple knit and purl combination, as I've given below:
Row 1: using color B, knit
Row 2: using color B, * k3, p3 *
Row 3: using color A, knit
Row 4: using color A, * p3, k3 *
Knit rows 1 - 4 until piece measures roughly 8" and you've just finished row 3 of the pattern (you could also add up to 2 extra inches for a slouchier appearance). Then we'll work our decrease, as follows. Note that you can clip the tail of your color B yarn, since you're done with it!
Decrease Row 1: using color A, * k4, k2tog * (95 stitches)

You're going to want to switch to your dpns now, since this decrease is a quickie!
Decrease Row 2: using color A, * k3, k2tog * (76 stitches)
Decrease Row 3: using color A, * k2, k2tog * (57 stitches)
Decrease Row 4: using color A, * k1, k2tog * (38 stitches)
Decrease Row 5: using color A, * k2tog * (19 stitches)

Decrease Row 6: using color A, k1, * k2tog * (10 stitches)

Clip yarn and thread tail through remaining 10 stitches. Pull tight, thread to inside of hat, and knot. Tuck in ends. Finally, place on head and let the magic begin.
