Hats are a favorite project for knitters. Last year alone I knitted almost two dozens hats. While I am always on the look out for different and interesting styles and designs, sometimes what you need is a plain ordinary hat.
For this hat I did not use a pattern. I pretty much made it up as I went along. I am afraid that I did not write down the pattern instructions as I went, I am unable to share them with you.
I did cast on 96 stitches using a long tail cast on method, and joined in the round. The 2×2 ribbing was worked for 10 rounds. After knitting 18 rounds in stockinette, I began my decrease.
The variegated yarn created stripes as I went.
