Purl Waves

Just another hat pattern. No real intro to go with this one.


You'll need:
yarn - bulky weight (I used Lion Brand Tweed Stripes in Woodlands)
needles - size US 8 circular
A tapestry needle for weaving in ends
A place marker

Abbreviations:
CDD (center double decrease) - worked over 3 stitches; slip 2 stitches together knit-wise, knit the third stitch, pass the 2 slipped stitches over together

kfbf (knit front back front) - a double increase; knit into the stitch normally, but don't slip it off the needle, knit into the back loop, then knit again into the front loop, slipping the stitch off the needle

Brim
CO 80 stitches, place marker
Knit in 2x2 ribbing until the brim is to the desired length.

row 1: *k4, m1* (100 st.)
row 2: knit

Begin pattern
row 1: *CDD, k3, kfbf, k3*
row 2: knit to marker, remove marker, sl 1 stitch from right needle to left needle, place marker (this shifts the beginning of the round by 1 stitch)
row 3: purl

repeat these rows until the hat measures 7" from beginning

Begin decreasing
row 1: *CDD, k7* (80)
row 2: knit to marker, remove marker, sl 1 stitch from right needle to left needle, place marker (shifts the beginning of the round by 1 stitch)
row 3: purl
row 4: *CDD, k5* (60)
row 5: repeat row 2
row 6: repeat row 3
row 7: *CDD, k3* (40)
row 8: repeat row 2
row 9: repeat row 3
row 10: *CDD, k1* (20)
row 11: knit

Break yarn and pull through all stitches. Tie off and weave in all ends.
