Relay 4 Life hat pattern

I'm making these hats in purple for the Huntington Area Relay for life. This pattern is very easy and turns out really cute. I've made 4 in 2 days! The reductions make a cute little "spin" on the top. I was able to get 4 hats out of 1 ball each of the yarns. Enjoy!
Relay 4 Life Hat

1 ball of Red Heart Soft in Lavender

1 ball of Bernat Disco in Motown Mauve

Small circular needle US 8

4-5 DPNs US8

4 stitch markers

tapestry needle


Holding Disco and Red Heart Soft together, CO 64 st


Rows 1-3 Knit

* At the end of row 3 break off disco and work the tail into the following stitches.

Rows 4-25 Knit

Row 26 K 16, PM, K 16, PM, K16, PM, K 16, PM.

Row 27 (Knit unitl 2 stitches before marker, K 2tog) x4

Row 28 Knit plain

Rows 29-36 Repeat Rows 27&28 4 times more

* change to DPNs

Rows 37-46 Repeat row 27

Now, barring anything unforseen you should have 2 st between each marker. Break yarn and thread onto a tapestry needle. Gather up remaining stitches and pull snuggly. Tack tail down on the interior of the hat. Weave in ends. DONATE!

Love it, I am on a Relay for Life Committee (Luminaria co chair). I am also a breast cancer survivor. I plan to make some of these and may make some in pink. Thank you so much for sharing.
