Hat Pattern

The hat is worked in continuous rounds. Do not join at the end of a round, continue working in a spiral. Make sure to mark your first or last stitch to keep track of where your rounds start and end.

When the pattern states main color, I worked from the center of the cake. When the pattern asks for contrast color yarn, I worked from the outside of the cake.
