My first Pattern... a HAT!

After getting the hang of knitting in the round and doing simple decreases, I thought I'd experiment with making my own hat pattern.

I saw the basket weave/checkerboard pattern on a scarf at Article Pract and decided to adapt it to a hat.

Hope the directions make sense... feel free to email me for clarification.

Cast on an even multiple of 10 sts (eg. 80) on a set of round needles.

Start knitting in the round with a 2 x 2 rib (K2, P2, repeat).

Once you have about 2" of rib, work one round of knits.

Pattern:

R1: * K5, P5. Repeat from * till end of row. Make sure you mark the beginning of the row with a stitch marker.
