Sister's Ribbed Hat Take 2



So I made a ribbed beanie last year for a sister who helped me move. She recently moved and lost the hat, d'oh ( I knew my habit of losing stuff was genetic). The other day I started a new one for her.

I used left over yarn from the Starfish Cap which was Lamb's Pride Superwash Worsted in purple and green and size 5 Clover dpns. I was getting a gauge of 5.5 sts per inch in St st and had a hard time finding a cap with a similar gauge. So I figured out one of my own, it is a basic 2x2 ribbed beanie but I worked the decreases kinda differently. If you are interested, directions are below. I didn't include directions for the color changes, do whatever you want.

CO 128 sts, join.
Work in p2,k2 ribbing for 40 rows.
Begin Decreases as follows:
1. *(p2 k2)x3, p2 ssk repeat from * 7 times more
2. *(p2 k2)x3, p2 k1 rep from * 7 times more
3. *(p2 k2)x3, p2tog k1 rep from * 7 times more
4. *(p2 k2)x3, p1 k1 rep from * 7 times more
5. *(p2 k2)x2, p2 ssk p1 k1 rep from * 7 times more
6. *(p2 k2)x2, p2 k1 p1 k1 rep from * 7 times more
7. *(p2 k2)x2, p2tog k1 p1 k1 rep from * 7 times more
8. *(p2 k2)x2, (p1 k1)x2 rep from * 7 times more
9. *p2 k2 p2 ssk (p1 k1)x2 rep from * 7 times more
10. *p2 k2 p2 k1 (p1 k1)x2 rep from * 7 times more
11. *p2 k2 p2tog k1 (p1 k1)x2 rep from * 7 times more
12. *p2 k2 (p1 k1)x3 rep from * 7 times more
13. *p2 ssk (p1 k1)x3 rep from * 7 times more
14. *p2 k1 (p1 k1)x3 rep from * 7 times more
15 *p2tog k1 (p1 k1)x3 rep from * 7 times more
16. (p1 k1)x32
17. *(p1 k1)x2 p1 p2tog k1 rep from * 7 times more
18. *p1 p2tog k2 p2 k1 rep from * 7 times more
19. *p2 k1 p2tog k1 rep from * 7 times more
20 *p2tog k1 p1 k1 rep from * 7 times more
21. *p1 p2tog k1 rep from * 7 times more
22. *p2tog k1 rep from * 7 times more

cut yarn with a tail ~6 inches long, draw through all stitches and weave in all ends.
