New pattern: Thisbe Hat

I named this hat after my kitten, Thisbe.

Materials:
2 skeins of DK yarn in contrasting colors: I used Silky Wool (the white), and Baby Llama (the maroon), both by Elsebeth Lavold.
16″ circular needles, sizes 6 and 9
Tapestry needle
Stitch marker
–PATTERN–
With smaller needles and both strands, CO 80 sts.
Join in rnd, begin (k1, p1) rib.

After two inches, switch to larger needles.
Continue in (k1, p1) rib until hat measure 8″ from cast-on edge.

Decrease:

Row 1: (work 8 stitches in pattern, k2tog), rpt to end of rnd
Row 2: 
work all sts in pattern **
Row 3: (
work 7 stitches in pattern, k2tog), rpt to end of rnd
Row 4: work all sts in pattern
Row 5: (
work 6 stitches in pattern, k2tog), rpt to end of rnd
Row 6: 
work all sts in pattern
Row 7: (
work 5 stitches in pattern, k2tog), rpt to end of rnd
Row 8: 
work all sts in pattern
Row 9: (
work 4 stitches in pattern, k2tog), rpt to end of rnd
Row 10: (
work 3 stitches in pattern, k2tog), rpt to end of rnd
Row 11: (
work 2 stitches in pattern, k2tog), rpt to end of rnd
Row 12: (
work 1 stitches in pattern, k2tog), rpt to end of rnd
Row 13: (k2tog), rpt to end of rnd

**when it says “work in pattern,” it means to keep in the ribbing pattern.
So if the previous row had a knit, knit that stitch. The same goes for a purl.


Cut yarn, leaving a 10″ tail, and thread through rem sts.
weave in ends.
