This is one of only two Christmas hats I made this year. I will post the other one tomorrow (when it is hopefully finished!).
This hat was knitted and then put through the washer and dryer twice. The brim and bobble were made with a machine washable and dryable yarn. I made a rolled rim, then switched to Patons Classic wool and increased the number of stitches significantly. I decreased evenly up the hat, loosing 10 stitches every 10 rows. As I approached the top, I started decreasing less per row, more frequently so I didn’t have large jogs.
