Dearest Hat with Purple Stripes,
You were so fun to knit and worked up so quickly. I designed you specifically to match my purple jacket and, boy did I get a lot of compliments on you. You saw me through 3 winters and were the perfect size and never messed up my hair
Notes on how to make this hat -
I think I used a size 8 16" circular needle and knit ~5 rows in a K5P5 pattern (maybe casting on 60?). I knit the purple stripes as shown and decreased first in the purled areas and then in the knit areas when there were no purled areas remaining. If I remake this hat, I will actually write down a pattern as I go.
