Pixie Hat--Pattern

I had one ball of natural pink Patons SWS yarn and A needed a new hat. So, here it is:

Pixie Hat

1 ball SWS yarn
1 set dpn US9
1 circular US9 16"

With ball of yarn, start with pink or white region. When you reach a region of green, cut yarn and wind off until color change, then resume knitting. At decrease -- k13, change yarn to green and continue knitting in greens only. This color scheme results in a little upside down flower. Of course you may disregard completely and just do stripes.

CO72 stitches onto circular needles
Mark beginning of round, and knit in 2X2 ribbing for 6 rows
Knit in stockinette for 14 rows

Begin decrease rounds:
*K16, K2tog* to end of round.
Knit one round
K15, K2tog* to end of round.
at the point of K13, change yarn to green.
*K1, K2tog* to end of round.
Knit one round
*K2tog* to end of round.
Knit one round
break yarn and with darning needle, thread through remaining loops and tie off. Sew in all ends.

start time: December 5, 2007
finish time: December 5, 2007

Looks so cute with the touch of green just at the top. Great use of one ball of yarn.
