88 Slouch Hat pattern

My ultimate hat! Based on a hat my friend bought me (turquoise, pictured) many years ago. 


Yarn: Any Aran weight yarn
Needles: 6mm & 7mm circular needles, 7mm DPN or long circular to use the Magic Loop technique.

ADULT 
Using 6mm needles, cast on 88 stitches, join work.
Work Knit 2, purl 2 in the round until work measures 10cms.
Switch to 7mm needles and continue the K2, P2 rib until work measures about 26cms.

Switch to double pointed needles/long circular and knit 2 tog until eight stitches remain are left. (see pictures)
Cut yarn, thread onto a darning needle and thread yarn though stitch loops to close. Weave in ends and wash before wearing.

CHILD
Use any DK weight yarn and 4mm & 5mm needles.
Follow the same instructions as for the adult version, but start the decrease when work measures 18-20cms.
