This is so pretty, in a unique, but easy pattern stitch. Uses light weight worsted weight yarn, and knitting needle 16 circular, US # 7. Our will only need a few double pointed needles to decrease at top. We kept this simple too! A fun pattern to repeat around. This is a new type of stitch, but why not try something new, something not so boring! The hat will be finished before you know it, and then add the cute tassel type topper on top of hat!
