Chevron Hat

This is a relatively simple hat to make. I found the pattern on knitting central:
Cast on 100 stitches. Round 1: Purl. (First round of hat only: Slip first stitch. Purl to last stitch. Purl last stitch with slipped first stitch, being careful not to twist the row. This will close the round and decrease one stitch. 99 st. Place marker.) Round 2, 4: Knit. Round 3, 5: Purl. Rounds 6, 8, 10, 12: * k2tog, k2, k2f&b, k3, sl1, k1, psso rep from * Rounds 7, 9, 11: Knit.
Repeat rounds 1-12 three more times. You should have a total of four chevrons.
Switch to double pointed needles (or continue with the circular needle until about round 6, then switch to dpn). I suggest purling off an equal number of stitches on to the double pointed neeedles on the first decrease round.
Round 1: Purl (no decrease).Round 2: *k2tog, k7, K2tog. (81 st)Round 3: Purl. Round 4: *k2tog, k5, K2tog. (63 st)Round 5: Purl. Round 6: *k2tog, k3, K2tog. (45 st)Round 7: Knit. Round 8: *k2tog, k1, K2tog. (27 st)Round 9: Knit. Round 10: k1, *k2 tog. (14 st)

Cut the yarn leaving about 6" tail. Using a tapestry needle, thread the tail through the remaining stitches. Pull stitches together tightly. Thread tail through hole in crown. Draw crown closed securely by pulling tail. Weave the tail and all other ends through stitches on wrong side.

This hat looks so much better in person, the photo does not do it justice. And the yarn you used was so soft!

Thanks for sharing the pattern with us!!
