Yarn: Lang Fantomas Superwash (75% Virgin Wool, 25% Polyamide; 153 yards [140 meters]/50 grams); #0209 Rosa Dunkel - 1-2 skeins

Needles: One 16" circular needle in size US 3; one 16" circular needle in size US 4; one set of double pointed needles (dpns), also in size US 4, cable needle (cn) or dpn for cabling

Notions: Tapestry needle, stitch marker

Gauge: 25 stitches = 4 inches on size US 4 needles

So let's make a hat, shall we? Using your size US 3 needle, then, cast on 130 stitches loosely, place marker, and join in round. We'll need the following definitions to continue - and remember, you can always skip the cable needle if you're so inclined:

front cross (fc): slip next 3 stitches to cn and hold in front; k3, k3 from cn

back cross (bc): slip next 3 stitches to cn and hold in back; k3, k3 from cn

And with that defined, we'll continue as follows. If you're a chart person, you can find a chart of the entire hat below all of the written instructions; please note that I have included all rows in the chart, including the knit-only ones from the main pattern below the ribbing. Oh yeah, and if you're not a chart person we're working like so:
Ribbing Rows 1 - 2: * p1, (k1, p1) 8 times, k9 *
Ribbing Row 3: * p1, (k1, p1) 8 times, fc, k3 *

Ribbing Rows 4 - 6: * p1, (k1, p1) 8 times, k9 *

Ribbing Row 7: * p1, (k1, p1) 8 times, k3, bc *
Ribbing Row 8: * p1, (k1, p1) 8 times, k9 *

Knit ribbing rows 1 - 8 and then knit rows 1 - 7 once more. Transfer work to your size US 4 circular needle. Then we'll begin the main pattern, which contains an adaptation of Pointed Chevron from page 276 of Barbara G. Walker's A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns and a braided cable, as follows:

Row 1 and all odd rows: knit

Row 2: * yo, k2tog, k2, (yo, ssk, k2tog, yo, k1) twice, k1, ssk, yo, k9 *

Row 4: * yo, k2tog, k3, yo, ssk, k3, k2tog, yo, k3, ssk, yo, fc, k3 *
Row 6: * yo, k2tog, k4, yo, ssk, k1, k2tog, yo, k4, ssk, yo, k9 *
Row 8: * yo, k2tog, k5, yo, slip 1-k2tog-psso, yo, k5, ssk, yo, k3, bc *
Row 10: * yo, k2tog, k2, ssk, k2, yo, k1, yo, k2, k2tog, k2, ssk, yo, k9 *

Row 12: * yo, k2tog, k2, ssk, k2, yo, k1, yo, k2, k2tog, k2, ssk, yo, fc, k3 *

Row 14: * yo, k2tog, k2, ssk, k2, yo, k1, yo, k2, k2tog, k2, ssk, yo, k9 *

Row 16: * yo, k2tog, k2, ssk, k2, yo, k1, yo, k2, k2tog, k2, ssk, yo, k3, bc *

Knit rows 1 - 16 twice and then knit rows 1 - 9 once more. Then we'll begin our decrease, as follows:

Decrease Row 1: * yo, k2tog, ssk, k4, yo, k1, yo, k4, k2tog, ssk, yo, k9 * (130 stitches - no actual decrease in this one!)

Decrease Row 2: * k2, ssk, k9, k2tog, k11 * (120 stitches)

Decrease Row 3: * yo, k2tog, (ssk) twice, (k1, yo) twice, k1, (k2tog) twice, ssk, yo, fc, k3 * (110 stitches)

Decrease Row 4: * k2, (ssk) twice, k1, (k2tog) twice, k11 * (90 stitches)

At this point you'll want to transfer your work to your dpns...

Decrease Row 5: * yo, k2tog, ssk, k1, k2tog, ssk, yo, k9 * (80 stitches)

Decrease Row 6: * k2, slip 1-k2tog-psso, k11 * (70 stitches)
Decrease Row 7: * ssk, k1, k2tog, k3, bc * (60 stitches)
Decrease Row 8: * slip 1-k2tog-psso, k9 * (50 stitches)
Decrease Row 9: * k1, ssk, k5, k2tog * (40 stitches)
Decrease Row 10: * k1, ssk, k3, k2tog * (30 stitches)
Decrease Row 11: * k1, ssk, k1, k2tog * (20 stitches)
Decrease Row 12: * k1, slip 1-k2tog-psso * (10 stitches)

Knit decrease rows 1 - 12. Clip yarn tail, and, using tapestry needle, thread through remaining 10 stitches and pull tight. Tuck in ends.
