Carnival Hat

I don't know what kind of yarn this is, but it looks festive, and I have a LOT of it.

Also, at this time, I would like to solicit prayer for my former English teacher, Jean Doherty.  About a week ago, she was in a car accident.  Her side and pelvis were crushed and she will not be able to walk for a long time.  She is currently at the University of Virginia hospital.  Please keep her in your prayers.



Materials:
-4.5mm circular needles
-some sort of worsted weight yarn
-tapestry needle

Abbreviations:
sts- stitches
CO- cast on
BO- bind off
k- knit
p- purl
k2tog- knit 2 together

Making the hat:
CO 60 sts.
Join in the round.
Work in k1, p1 rib for 5 rows.
Row 1:  * k2, p5, p3 *  rep from * to end
Row 2 and alt rows:  k the k sts and p the p sts of previous row

Decrease (k2tog) all sts until there are only 20 sts left on the needle.
BO all sts.

Finishing:
Sew up the top and weave in your ends for a perfectly festive hat!

  1. Hi, got a question on the first row instructions. Sez k2 p5 p3, is this correct? I'm a newbie knitter and not sure what I'm missing with two sets of purl stitches in a row ;) Think this will be a great hat for my daughter. Thx!
