- 7. Row 1: a series of Knit 2 Purl 2. For the first two stitches, only knit<br />Use attached to knit, not tail<br />
- 8. Your Hat should look like this<br />k2<br />
- 9. After 2 Knits, move the attached end between the two needles<br />Hint: it is important to move the yarn after each 2. If not, you will have more than 94 stitches<br />Move behind needle to front<br />
- 10. Then Purl the next two stitches<br />
- 11. Your hat should look like this<br />p2<br />k2<br />
- 12. Remember to move your yarn to the outside before your next Knit 2<br />

- 15. So Remember<br />Before k2, yarn must be on the OUTSIDE<br />Before p2, yarn must be on the INSIDE<br />In case you do forget and end up with extra stitches, don’t worry, it isn’t a big deal. It is more important to keep all the stitches so the hat doesn’t unravel<br />
- 16. Your hat should look like this after Row 1 of alternating Knit 2 Purl 2<br />Hint: your last 2 stitches should have been k2<br />
- 17. Row 2: a continuation of Row 1. So this row begins with PURL 2 KNIT 2<br />Move to inside for p2<br />Hint: this row should end with Purl 2.<br />k2<br />p2<br />

- 24. The next row is ENTIRELY Knit Two Together. <br />Hint: to k2tog, insert the needle through 2 stitches instead of 1 and Knit as normal<br />
- 25. By Knitting Two Together, this will reduce your stitches amount by 1/2<br />k2tog<br />
- 26. Your hat should look like this, with a total of 47 stitches.<br />Hint: in case you had more/less than 94 stitches, k2tog until complete. If there is an odd number, Knit the last stitch by itself<br />
- 27. The next row is ONLY Purl. DO NOT p2tog<br />Hint: you will still have 47 stitches after this row<br />
- 28. For the next row, Knit 2 Together. This will reduce your stitches by ½ again<br />Hint: for the last stitch of your 47, Knit it by itself<br />
- 29. Your hat should look like this with 24 stitches left.<br />
- 30. The next row is ONLY Purl. DO NOT p2tog<br />Hint: you will still have 24 stitches after this row<br />

- 36. Using a bobby-pin or large sewing needle, weave the yarn through the stitches.<br />
- 37. Now remove the needles and tighten the string that you weaved through.<br />
- 38. From the inside of the hat, knot the string near the top and cut off the remaining yarn.<br />
- 39. Using the original tail and a bobby-pin or sewing needle, seam the two edges<br />
- 40. On the side without the tail, weave the yarn through a horizontal stitch.<br />Hint: horizontal stitches can be found behind the outside pattern by stretching the sides<br />
- 41. Tighten to join the bottom of the hat.<br />
- 42. Now weave the yarn through a horizontal stitch on the other side.<br />Continue alternating sides and moving upwards.<br />
- 43. Once you pass the rim, continue weaving through horizontal stitches.<br />Hint: when you reach this point you must choose whether to weave through the Vs or s. For symmetry, you must go through the same on each side.<br />V<br />
- 44. Once the entire hat is seamed, weave the yarn through the inside and knot until secure. Cut off the remaining tail.<br />knot<br />seam<br />
