Size: hat fits a child’s large (toddler ~ age 4), as well as a more snug fit for a man’s/woman’s small/medium-large.

Instructions
Cast-On: With #7 16" circular needle and MC, cast on 96 sts. P 1 row. Join being careful not to twist. Place marker to indicate beginning of rnd (BOR).
Designer’s note: it is truly a time- and sanity-saver to P that rnd before joining, as it usually prevents a twist from occurring. Hat body: work in K2P2 rib until hat is ~2.5 in from cast on edge.

The only difference between the 3 versions is the striping pattern, and the tiny top section on Hat 2.

Cut MC and join CC1; work rib for desired # of rnds; join CC2 and work rib for desired # of rnds. Then cut CC2 and work striped rib with CC1 for desired # of rnds. Cut CC1 and rejoin CC2

Notes:
1. by twisting CC1 with CC2 at each BOR, you can carry CC1 up until ready to use again, resulting in fewer ends to work in.
2. When joining a new yarn, knit the first 2 sts with both colors; this anchors the yarn end, and is truly almost invisible at center back of hat.

After completing stripes, continue to work hat in K2P2 rib until ~5.5 in from cast on edge.

Crown:
Preparation and first Dec rnd:
*(SSK, K19, K2tog, P1, place marker), around. Work 2 rnds in rib with no decreases.

Note: it’s difficult to work the decreases and retain the rib pattern perfectly. Always work the SSK as written, but if it seems appropriate for ribbing ‘look’, change the K2tog to a P2tog.

Dec Rnd 2: *(SSK, K17, K2tog, P1) around. Work 2 rnds in rib with no decs.
Dec Rnd 3: *(SSK, K15, K2tog, P1), around. Work 1 rnd in rib with no decs
Dec Rnd 4: *(SSK, K13, K2tog, P1) around. Work 1 rnd in rib with no decs.
Dec Rnd 5: *(SSK, K11, K2tog, P1), around. Work 1 rnd in rib with no decs.

Change to DPNs as the stitch count drops. It will enhance the look of the crown if you use needles 1-2 sizes smaller than those used for the hat body.

Dec Rnd 6: *(SSK, K9, K2tog, P1) around.
Dec Rnd 7: *(SSK, K7, K2tog, P1), around. Change yarn colors here if desired as in Version 2.
Dec Rnd 8: *(SSK, K5, K2tog, P1), around.
Dec Rnd 9: *(SSK, K3, K2tog, P1), around.
Dec Rnd 10: *(SSK, K1, K2tog, P1), around.
Dec Rnd 11: *(SSK, K1, P1), around
Dec Rnd 12: *(SSK, P1) around.
Dec Rnd 13: *(P2tog) around

Cut yarn, leaving an ~8 in end. With crochet hook (tapestry needle) draw yarn through each loop on needle and drop off. Pull snugly.

Finishing: work all ends in on reverse side so they don’t show. A crochet hook does this very rapidly.
