This hat is made from Dale Falk (Heilo would work as well) on size 4 circulars and double pointed needles. Cast on 90 stitches in Kolibri ( I like a cotton lining its less itchy) join and knit circularly for 2 inches, increase to 102 stitches. Change to red, knit a row, purl a row, knit a row,
change to blue, knit a row,
then knit a row of red then knit 2 red, 2 white, 2 red around,
then a row of white ,2 red, 2 white,around so the 2 white are ontop of the 2 red from the row before
then knit a row of red then knit 2 red, 2 white, 2 red around, again so the red is on top of white, white on top of red.
Knit a row of red, one of blue, one of red - do the star pattern
to work the stars i worked,
for a total of 102 stitches around.. the star is white the motif background and extra stitches are blue
when the star is done,
do 4 rows of red -
start decreasing in 3rd red row by putting a marker every 25 stitches
and decrease after
each marker in 4th red row
sew up the hem and make some festive twisted cords for the top
and if you see Skootchie
