CORRECTIONS: (applied Dec 20, 2013)
Notes 1. Hat is worked in rnds from lower edge up to crown (top of Hat) with 2 strands of yarn held together. 2. The Hat begins on a circular needle, changing to double pointed needles when decreasing at the crown. If you prefer, Hat may be worked entirely on double pointed needles. Wind yarn into 2 separate balls before beginning. 3. When knitting in the round on double-pointed needles (dpns), your sts need to be divided fairly evenly onto the needles. If you are working with a set of 4 dpn, your sts should be divided among 3 needles. The total number of sts will not always be evenly divisible by the number of dpns that you are using - this is not a problem! Simply divide your sts as evenly as possible, you will still create a symmetrical 'tube' of knitting. The Hat begins on a circular needle, changing to double pointed needles when decreasing at the crown. If you prefer, Hat may be worked entirely on double pointed needles. HAT Rnd 2: (K2tog, p2tog) 5 times, k2tog - 11 sts at the end of this rnd. Cut yarn, leaving a long yarn tail long tails. Thread tails through remaining sts and pull to gather.The above is only a summary of corrections; the corrected pattern text is below (if free) or shipped upon completion of order (if purchased)

Additional Materials
Circular knitting needle size 13 (9 mm), 16 in. (40.5 cm) long
GAUGE:
11 sts = about 4 in. (10 cm) over pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.
