Simple pattern, holding 2 strands together, cast on 30 stitches on Size 11 needles. Knit every row till piece measures 18". Bind off leaving a long tail. Thread tail thru every stitch along one 18" side and draw thru, shaping top of hat, then run a seam down the back.
I love the hat. I have printed out the picture of it to show the knitting group that I started in our apartment building. The first week we had 4 people and now have grown to a group of 12. Each have different levels of expertise so instead of working on one project everyone is doing something different. Some do crocheting and now we are learning how to do that too. We've even added coffee and homemade baked goods to our Monday afternoon gatherings in the partyroom. It's become so popular that friends of residents who do not live in the building have been joining us.
Needlenut, your design is going viral!
