Beginner-Friendly Knit Hat
The hat is worked on circular needles starting with a K1P1 rib for 2 inches.
With 3.5 mm circular knitting needles cast on 80 stitches.
Work in a knit 1 purl 1 stitch until back at the beginning of the row and join together on the circular needles.
Continue with knit 1 purl 1( ribbing stitch) until work measures 1.5 to 2 inches.
Change to a knit stitch and continue until work measures 6.5 to 7.5 inches total(including the ribbing).
Continue knitting next round marking each 15 stitches with a stitch marker. Total(5 markers) at 15,30,45,60,75 stitches.
Continue knitting next round and when reaching a marker, knit two together. This will decrease the total stitch count by 5 stitches per round.
Switch to 4 double-pointed needles when the number of stitches can't be easily worked with the circular needle and continue to decrease the number of stitches until there are none left on the needles.
The hat can be finished with a pompom, flower, or curly ribbon that can be added to the top of the hat if desired.
