I’m making this hat in size Medium (100 sts) with wider horizontal stripes and added pom pom.

Needle size:
I simply didn’t have 3.5mm DPNs on hand so I used 3.25mm needles for the hem instead.

Bottom edge:
I entirely replaced the first 26 rows of this pattern by 30 rows of 1X1 rib, making the bottom edge a little wider and ribbed instead of stockinette st.

Alternate knit & purl sections:
I made wider stripes by purling 10 rows and knitting 8 (instead of 5 & 4).

Decrease rows:
I wanted to space out the decrease rows a little more to get a rounder shape around the head. I worked the first decrease row on the 4th row of the 4th stockinette st section and the second decrease section on the 4th row of the 5th stockinette st section and the last increase row. After that I purled 5 rows, worked worked an entire row of p2tog (3rd decrease row), and finally worked 4 more purl rows.

Amazingly luxurious, soft and lofty yarn, I’m in love! I would definitely use again, for any sort of project.

Just cast on. This should be a fairly easy knit.
