PATTERN: Waterbender Hat
Size: One size fits most adult heads
Yarn: 1 ball each of Wisdom Yarns Poems #558 (MC) and #517 (CC)
Needles: US9 Circular (I did Magic Loop on a 40” circular set, but you can use a shorter circular set and switch to DPNs for the crown)
Gauge: 4.5 stitches per inch (row gauge is not crucial)
Join for working in the round. Work in 2×2 ribbing for 1 – 1.5 inches
K 1 row even, decreasing 2 stitches evenly. You should now have 110 stitches.
After working the 8 rows of the chart, switch back to MC. Knit in MC for 4 – 5 inches (measure from bottom of ribbing.)
