What you need

1 skein of Green
Small amount of brown
needle #8


Use about a number 8 and this can be knit flat or on circulars.

Well, it’s Cast on 80 with brown, knit 2 purl 2 ribbing for 6-8 rows.

Switch to green and purl 6 rows, then knit 4 rows twice.

After that you decrease 7 stitches each time you change to the knit stitches. If you want yours a bit shorter than mine, you can decrease on the first row of the purl, too, and it’ll draw in sooner.

After you have 7 purl rows knit 4 rows and purl 10 for the last rows. Run the gather string through the remaining stitches, pull up tight and tie off.

I decorated mine using beads with a metallic (or glass-like) finish that I bought at Wal-mart. They shine but it doesn’t show in the picture.

I stitched them on with green yarn (they have a big hole), just using a running stitch inside the hat.
