traviest, originally uploaded by j_sun.

I knit this for a good friend using 1 skein of cotton yarn. no itchies here, no siree bob. The last thing you want to think riding down a hill is how much you want to scratch your forehead. This was made for man's size medium.

what you will need:
1 50g skein of desired color (worsted weight)
5mm 16inch circular needles
5mm double pointed needles
tapestry needles to weave in ends

Cast on 96 stitches
K2P2 rib for 1.5 inches

Cable Pattern:
Row1: * CB6, P2, K2, P2* Repeat to end
Row2, 3, 4: * K6, P2, K2, P2* Repeat to end

Repeat these 4 rows 8 times then begin decreases

Row1: * K2tog,K2, SKP, P2, K2, P2* Repeat across (80 sts)
Row2: * K4, P2, K2, P2* Repeat across
Row3: * K2tog, SKP, P2, K2, P2* Repeat across (64 sts)
Row4: * K2, P2* Repeat across
Row5: * K2tog, P2tog* Repeat across (32 sts)
Row6: Knit all sts
Row7: * K2tog* Repeat across (16 sts)
Row8: Knit all sts
Row9: * K2tog* Repeat across (8 sts)

break yarn and weave through the last 8 stitches and tie closed. weave begining end in and BOH. you have the traviest hat evAr.
