Straight to this very day it was the wrong way

Made on size 4 1/2 needles using sirdar snuggly from a frogged razor cami.  I didnt know what this was going to be, I just kinda cast on, and let it become what it wanted. It is my new favorite among my knitted items. Maybe its crappy,  Roll Eyes  but Im pleased  Cheesy

With hair down:

Hair up (Would make a decent dread hat, or at least good for bad hair days  Grin

Being modeled my my cooking pot (I didnt feel I could get the right angle of the back while on me)

And a close up of the stitch definition:   Not sure if its called anything in particular ; Rnd 1 Knit 1, yo, knit 2og
                                                                                                                 Rnd 2 yo, knit 2 tog, knit 1

Sorry for the abundance of pics 

I havnt finished the second hat yet, but I figured Id forget that I said Id post the pattern, so I'll give you my half asses attempt and make changes if the proper notes actually ever get finished in this century  Roll Eyes   Thats what happens when life catches up to you, anyhoo,

I cast on 102 st. using sirdar snuggly and size 4 1/2 needles
Worked in 1X1 rib for 2 1/2 almost 3 inches
The next row I increased, and this is where Im lost, I started to inc. every 10th st. and then a quarter way in the round I realized it wouldnt be enough, so I switched to inc. every 5 stitch. (As long as at the end you have enough to work in pattern.)
I knit 3 rounds of stockinette and then started to work in pattern.
Pattern: Round 1 *Knit 1, YO, knit 2tog*  Repeat for the round
            Round 2  Knit
            Round 3  *YO, Knit 2tog, Knit 1* Repeat for round
            Round 4 Knit
Repeat these 4 rounds until desired length is reached, I knit these 4 rounds 16 times, then I decreased.

Round 1  knit 1, knit 2 tog,
Round 2    knit
Round 3   knit 2 tog, knit 1
Round 4    knit

And that was that. Any questions or criticisms of my pathetic attempt at explaining my self let me know  Grin

In no way is this crappy!  I love it!  And the stitch is great...I'd love to hear more about how you made it so that maybe I could give it a try too.  Woot Woot for spontaneity!

Very cute!  Thanks for sharing the stitch, I might have to make a teapot-cozy hat with it.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

did you do any kind of shaping for the hat, or did you just pull the string through the top of it when you thought it would be best???
this looks so cute i'm forreal about to make it.
