toddler slouchy hat

Slouchy Hat for Little Ones



To fit about a two year old:

50g sportweight (dk) yarn (I used Frog Tree Sportweight Alpaca)
US size 4 needles (16" circular and dpn) or size needles to get gauge

Gauge: 6 sts to 1" over st st

CO 96 sts on the circular needles. Place st marker indicating beg of round. Join for working in the round.

First round: *K2, P2* around. Continue working even in K2,P2 rib for about 1"-1 1/2".
Next: *K12, M1* (I used Kf/b). You are increasing 8 sts evenly around. You could increase more if you want it to be slouchier.
Next round: K around.
Continue even in st st for 3"-5" (depending on how slouchy you want it to be).

Begin crown decreases (switch to dpn as needed):
Round 1: *K7, K2tog* around. Work one round even.
Round 2: *K6, K2tog* around. Work one round even.
Round 3: *K5, K2tog* around. Work one round even.
Round 4: *K4, K2tog* around. Work one round even.
Round 5: *K3, K2tog* around. Work one round even.
Round 6: *K2, K2tog* around. Work one round even.
Round 7: *K1, K2tog* around. Work one round even.
Round 8: K2tog around.

Finish: Cut yarn, leaving a tail for sewing. Thread yarn through remaining sts and pull tight. Weave in all ends.




Cute!

What does "work one round even" mean?
