Cherry on top hat
1 skein Red Heart Dye Lot Acrylic 7 oz in Cherry red
US 7 (4.5 mm) circular needles
Cast on 84 stitches. Work the first 1 3/4" in seed stitch. After you have reached 1/ 3/4", begin with a purl row. Knit until you have reached 5 inches. Once you have reached five inches, decrease every 12 stitches for every other row. Do this four times. After you have reached the fourth time, decrease every row until you have reaced seven stitches. Once you reach seven stitches, cut the yarn, leaving a long tail. Work the tail through the last stitches, using a tapestry needle. Sew a sewm in the back of the hat, using a matress stitch. (Do this, only if you have circular needles that are not 16"). Weave in loose ends.
The hat pattern was orginally supposed to be the Adults only Devil Hat from the book Stitch N' Bitch, the Knitters handbook, by Debbie Stoller. I made the hat, but it turned into a creation of my own.
