Spiral Hat

Easy Knit Hat!

US6, 16″ circular needle
Mochi Plus Color Intense Rainbow

Cast on 60 stitches (for a baby hat)
Join in the round…you know the drill…make sure the stitches aren’t twisted.
Knit 4 rows (this will make the edge will roll up)

Here comes the trick.   Don’t bother marking the start of the round.  Just Yarn Over, Knit 2 Together…until the hat is the height you want, then k2tog until you have about 7 or 8 stitches left, cut the yarn and weave through the last remaining stitches.  Cinch up and weave in ends.

Easy peasy!

So, this technique works for ANY yarn, here it is in Cascade Magnum.  I just added a ribbed edge.
