Inspired by knitting the Drop Stitch Scarf by Christine Vogel, I wanted a hat to fit the style of my good friend JD, so I came up with this. The drop stitch pattern really opens up so this may not be the warmest hat but should still be good for spring and fall, and makes a nice set with the scarf I think.

11/08/2011: Edited rows 12 & 14 in pattern, should be K4, M1 if casting on 64.

02/12/2012: Edited to add written instructions for the drop stitch pattern rows (18 - 33).

Note: This pattern has not been test knit. I’ve added written instructions for those who prefer them but I haven’t knit from them yet so if you use them and find errors there or anywhere else in the pattern, please send me a PM and I will promptly correct it! :)
