Changes I made when starting the decreases:
Instead of a k2tog, ssk I did a center double decrease on a knit stitch as the center, purling the stitches in between. I also added one decrease row so I was left with 7 sts to pull the yarn through.

Written out the decrease rows are as follows:

  1. p5, cdd (p9,cdd) to last 4 sts, p4
  2. p5, k1 (p9,k1) to last 4sts, p4
  3. p4, cdd (p7,cdd) to last 3 sts,p3
  4. p4,k1 (p7,k1) to last 3 sts, p3
  5. p3, cdd (p5,cdd),to last 2 sts ,p2
  6. p3,k1 (p5,k1) to last 2sts, p2
  7. p2,cdd (p3,cdd) to last st, p1
  8. p2,k1 (p3,k1) to last st p1
  9. p1,cdd (p1, cdd) to end of row
  10. p1,k1 to end of row
  11. k2tog to end of row

Then I sewed a soccer ball button on the top. I am pleased with how this came out and am looking forward to see pictures of my little grand-nephew wearing this hat.

Beginnings: I am making this for my nephew’s first baby due in August. Last year I made a hat for his brother’s first baby, Leandra. Leandra grew out of the hat pretty quickly and just during the cold months. So, that is why I am knitting this hat up in size 1 year and in a k1, p1 ribbing all around. This way he should get a little more wear out of it.
