Patons is for contrast stripes, because I am not sure one skein of Maizy will make the whole hat. Using my fave generic pattern, making a summer chemo cap for a friend’s husband. :)
Cast on 152, magic loop.
2x2 rib 15 rounds.
Increase 8sts evenly on next round, knit plain (adding stripes, as desired) until body of hat is ~6”.
Decrease every other round, to 24 sts., do not knit plain round.
Knit 1 more decrease round, and finish top.
