Garter Brim Toddler Hat

Apparently this never got published and was eventually eaten in drafts. Yay, right? Anywho, here's the pattern again!

note this was a tester, the pattern is fixed to make it the right length before decreasing

Lion Brand Wool-Ease (or any yarn of a similar gage)
Size 5 (3.5mm), 7 (4.5mm) circular needles and a set of 4 size 7 (4.5mm)dpns
darning needle for end weaving

note: I have very loose garter ribbing, so much so that I had to go down to a 5 just to match with the st st on the 7's. If you are a tight knitter, you may want to start with a 6 or a 7, it's all on how you knit.

Using the size 5 circ, cast on 70 sts, Starting with a purl round, work garter in the round for approx 1" (about  3 ridges). Starting with a p row gives it a neater edge, but thats just my opinion. Switch to size 7 circs, and work in st st until piece measures 4" from beginning edge.

Dec rows:

Rnd 1: K8, k2tog - 63 sts

Rnds 2 and 3: K

Rnd 4: K7, k2tog - 56 sts

Rnds 5 and 6: K

Rnd 7: K6, k2tog - 49 sts

Rnds 8 and 9: K

Rnd 10: K5, k2tog - 42 sts

Rnds 11, 13, 15, 17: K

Rnd 12: K4, k2tog - 35 sts

Rnd 14: K3, k2tog - 28 sts

Rnd 16: K2, k2tog - 21 sts

Rnd 18: K1, k2tog - 14 sts

Rnd 19: K2tog - 7 sts

Cut yarn, weave in through sts, fasten off. Weave in ends. Tada! Hat!
