School Spirit Hat

This is a hat I made to show my school spirit. My school colors are white and blue, but you can use whatever colors you want for this cute and easy hat. 
For this hat I used size 8 straight needles, Debbie Bliss Cashmerino dk in white, and KnitPicks Brava Sport in Sky.

Cast on 84 stitches with the blue yarn (or whatever color your school is.) Knit in k1, p1 rib for 2 inches. Change to the white yarn, and knit in stockinette for an inch. Then knit in the blue for another inch, then for the white in another inch, and finally change back to the blue.

Shaping the Top:
Row 1: *K5, k2tog, rep from * to end. You should have 72 stitches.
Row 2: Purl
Row 3: *K4, k2tog, rep from * to end. You should have 60 stitches.
Row 4: Purl
Row 5: *K3, k2tog, rep from * to end. You should have 48 stitches.
Row 6: Purl
Row 7: *K2, k2tog, rep from * to end. You should have 36 stitches.
Row 8: Purl
Row 9: *K1, k2tog, rep from * to end. You should have 24 stitches.
Row 10: Purl
Row 11: k2tog all the way across. You should have 12 stitches.

Cut off a tail of about 2-3 feet, thread it onto your yarn needle, and transfer the stitches from your knitting needle onto your yarn needle. Pull tight, then sew up the side of the hat. 


Enjoy!! Great for going to support your school's team at a game or something this winter! :)
Binding Off,
