Spiral Hat Pattern

Spiral Hat

Easy Knit Hat!
.

US6, 16″ circular needle
Mochi Plus Color Intense Rainbow
.

Cast on 60 stitches (for a baby hat)
Join in the round…you know the drill…make sure the stitches aren’t twisted.
Knit 4 rows (this will make the edge will roll up)
.

Here comes the trick.   Don’t bother marking the start of the round.  Just Yarn Over, Knit 2 Together…until the hat is the height you want, then k2tog until you have about 7 or 8 stitches left, cut the yarn and weave through the last remaining stitches.  Cinch up and weave in ends.
.

Easy peasy!
.

So, this technique works for ANY yarn, here it is in Cascade Magnum.  I just added a ribbed edge.
