Just for fun
This hat is patterned after one in "Yarns to Dye For". It is made in two steps. Step 1: on straight needles work the brim with cables in the center and garter stitch at each edge. Join the beginning and end to make a circle. Step 2: with circular needle or double points pick up stitches around one of the garter stitch edges of the circle. Knit a few rows, then decrease 6-8 stitches each round to make the top of the hat. I added an I-cord knot at the top of this hat. The large yarn and needles made the project go quickly, and it was the perfect "just for fun" project after a pair of lace socks!
