Blue Cortina Hat pattern

All my patterns are written for people with a decent knowledge of knitting.
For this pattern, you need to be familiar with kint and purl stitches and what they look like on the needle.

Yarn: any super bulky (I used this) approximately 80-100metres/grammes
Needles: 9mm for casting on, 6mm circular & DPNs

With the 9mm needles, cast on 56 stitches.
Switch to 6mm needles, join work and work in K2, P2 rib stitch until work measures 9-10cm

M2, and just work moss stitch by working K2, P2.

Continue until work measures 26-28 cms.

For the crown. Place a marker. Make sure the next two stitches are to being Knit stitches (Purl stitches on the needle, if you know what I mean)
R1: *K2tog, P2tog and repeat from *to marker
R2: For the next row/round, K1, P1
R3: K2tog into the back of the stitches. repeat to marker. (You may have a single/odd stitch left. That's OK. Just transfer it to the other side of the marker and continue)
R4: Repeat R3 once more.

You should have just a few stitches left. Cut the yra, thread it onto a needle, slip the stitches onto the tapestry needle and pull tight. Weave in all ends, and you're done!
