Noro Ribbed Toque

***Link To Ravelry Project Page***

- 4.5mm/7us circular needle and/or a set of 4.5mm/7us DPNs
- 1 Ball of Noro Kureyon or Silk Garden (50gr/100metres) or another worsted weight yarn.
--->NOTE- This pattern cuts it real close with the one ball, but it can be done.
- Stitch markers

- Cast on 84 stitches onto the circular needle or the dpns. Be careful not to twist the stitches when joining in the round. Place a stitch marker at beginning of round if using circulars.
-K2P2 in the round until it measures 5.75 inches from bottom cast on edge to needle.
-Next round continue with the ribbing pattern but transferring the stitches to the dpns (if not using them already) putting a stitch marker after every 14 stitches.
-*Next round continue with the ribbed pattern and when you reach 2 stitches before each marker/end of needle K2tog.
-The next round is knit plain, no decreases*
-Repeat from * to * 3 times more.
-Starting on the next round decrease before every stitch marker every round until there are 2 stitches left on each needle.
-Take yarn needle and pull end through 6 remaining stitches and pull tight and the weave in your ends.

This hat will look small when it's done but since it is done in ribbing it stretches to form fit almost anyone's head. If it has to be bigger or smaller just increase or decrease the amount of stitches first cast on. Making sure that it is still divisible by 4 (for the ribbing) and make sure there can still be equal placement of the stitch markers. And you can also lengthen or shorten the "body" of the hat to accommodate larger or smaller heads.

--> I did some revisions (and spell checking!) on the old pattern. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
