Modeled by my sweetie.


Detail


Double-thickness means extra warmth and way less finishing!

Materials:
-5x DPNs, size 7
-Worsted-weight yarn in two colors (I used leftover Caron Simply Soft for the black and some bright green mystery yarn for the letters)
-Yarn needle

Notes:
I made the outer hat first and then went back and added a liner.  If you're comfortable working from the top down, you could make the outer first, and then just keep knitting and do the whole hat backwards for the liner.  If anyone's interested, I can post a pattern for doing it that way.
For more help working in two colors, see here, here, and here.

Directions:

Outer
CO 20 stitches on each of four needles.
Rnd 1-12: Work in 1x1 ribbing
Rnd 13-25: Knit in stockinette stitch
Rnd 26: Knit the first 23 stitches, then, working right to left, work the bottom row of the following pattern into the hat.  (I don't carry the yarn all the way around the hat; rather, I work one row across and then clip the yarn and start over on the next round.  You end up with more little tails in the back of your work, but you can just tie them loosely to other nearby tails when you're done to secure them and it'll all be hidden by the liner.) Knit 22 stitches.



Rnd 27-34: Continue to work in this manner, reading the pattern from right to left and from bottom to top, until all of the letters are knitted in.
Rnd 35-47: Knit in stockinette stitch
Rnd 48: *K2tog, knit 8* Repeat from * to * to end of row.
Rnd 49: *K2tog, knit 7* Repeat from * to * to end of row.
Rnd 50: *K2tog, knit 6* Repeat from * to * to end of row.
Rnd 51: *K2tog, knit 5* Repeat from * to * to end of row.
Rnd 52: *K2tog, knit 4* Repeat from * to * to end of row.
Rnd 53: *K2tog, knit 3* Repeat from * to * to end of row.
Rnd 54: *K2tog, knit 2* Repeat from * to * to end of row.
Rnd 55: *K2tog, knit 1* Repeat from * to * to end of row.
Rnd 56: *K2tog* Repeat from * to * to end of row.

Clip yarn, leaving a long tail (8" or so).  Thread through remaining loops, pull tight, and tie off.

Liner:
Pick up 80 stitches over four DPNs from the bottom of the outer.  There should be a round of loops just inside of the first row of ribbing, between the stitches.  You can use these to pick up your new stitches.  Tuck the yarn tail (clipped fairly short) from the first hat's cast-on inside of your work, and you won't even have to bother weaving it in.
Repeat the pattern for the outer, excluding the design.  It'll look like you have some sort of weird Siamese twin hats, joined at the brims.
Invert the liner so that it's inside of the hat.  Look how much finishing you just avoided!
Take the yarn tail from the top of the outer, and thread it onto a yarn needle.  Poke it down through the middle of the outer hat, and out through the middle of the liner.  Tie the two yarn tails at the tops of the inner and outer hat together securely, and then thread them both through the yarn.  Go back through the top of the liner, and lose the tails between the two hats.  Yay for not weaving in ends!

As always, if you've got questions or I screwed something up royally and you want to correct me, make sure to tell me so.
Thanks for looking!

You say for the outside to cast on 20 stitches.  Did you mean 80 stitches?

I love the hat and I love the idea of doing double thickness.  Here in Wisconsin that would be particularly useful.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

No prob.  I'm known for my weird, circular speech patterns and twisted syntax, anyway.  This is the stuff I'm looking for before I actually write down my knitting patterns formally, so thanks!
