I knit socks from the toe up, I knit sweaters from the top down, and I knit hats from the … bottom edge? That didn’t make sense to me, and the decreases on most hats weren’t round enough for my head, leaving little scrunchy bits at the top I couldn’t block out, so I created this hat pattern.

You need about 75-100g of DK/Light Worsted weight yarn to complete this hat. I’ve used Gorilla Toes, as it’s superwash, and machine-washable.

Updated to include the correct stitch count and instructions for row 5.
