Using 3.5mm circular needle and MC cast on 80 (90: 100: 110) sts. Join to work in the round, being careful not to twist sts and place contrasting colour marker for beg of round.

Rib round: *K1, P1; repeat from * to end of round.
Repeat rib round until brim measures 4cm from cast-on edge.

Change to 4mm circular needle. Knit across Round 1 of chart to end, placing a marker every 10 sts. You should have 8 (9: 10: 11) markers in total.

Join in contrast colour.
Work Rounds 2 to 41 of chart, working pattern 8 (9: 10: 11) times per round, and stranding colour not in use across the back of the work. On rounds when only one colour is in use you can carry the unused colour up the side of the work on the wrong side at beginning of round, or break and rejoin colours as desired. Choose whichever option gives you the neatest result - different knitters will find one better than the other!



You will now shape the crown of the hat. If preferred, you can follow chart rounds 42 to 55, or work from the written pattern below as follows. Remember to change to double-pointed needles when there aren′t enough sts for your circular needles.

Turn hat inside out so that WS is on the outside and RS are together. Distribute remaining 16 (18: 20: 22) sts so that they are on two double-pointed needles, with 8 (9: 10: 11) sts on each needle. With a third double-pointed needle, join the two sets of sts together using the three-needle cast off method. Turn hat RS out. Weave in ends. Block gently to even out fabric, but do not stretch.
