I used 4 1/2 mm needles.
Cast on 100 stitches for an adult, If you want it smaller cast on less stitches.
Row 1: knit
Row 2: purl
Row 3: K1, P1
Row 4: purl
Repeat these 4 rows until it measures 8", I did till it measured 11" end with the Purl row.
Once it measures 8" or 11"
Next row: K1, K2 together, end with K1
Next row: purl
Repeat these two rows one more time.
Cut the yarn 15" or 20" long and weave it through the last stitches.
Pull it together and sew the top and sides from the wrong side of the hat. Turn it over to the right side.
This hat makes it own roll up brim. Knit and keep yourself warm with this cute hat :)
The pattern is adapted from here.
