O gorro do A.

.. or the 2-hour hat, as I'll call it from now on ... A. asked me to knit him a hat a couple of weeks ago, and incredibly enough I couldn't find a suitable yarn in all of my yarn stash so yesterday I went to the yarn store nearby and got two skeins of grey which is one of his favourite colours. I couldn't find a pattern either that I liked, so instead I adapted the pattern from the Gala hat from Rowan #36 which I had knitted before .. I'll post the instructions here so I won't lose them and for future reference:

Yarn: Rosários 4 Zelândia (2 skeins of 50 gr each)
Needles: 6 mm

- CO 56 stitches (I used 2 threads together)
- Knit in 2x2 rib (2 knit followed by 2 purl) until it measures about 5 cm
- Next rounds knit in stockinette stitch until it measures about 13 cm (end with a purl row)
- Start decreasing in the following way:
- Row 1: (Knit 6, k2tog) until the end
- Row 2: purl
- Row 3: knit
- Row 4: purl
- Row 5: (Knit 5, k2tog) until the end
- Rows 6, 8, 10 and 12: purl
- Row 7: (Knit 4, k2tog) until the end
- Row 9: (Knit 3, k2tog) until the end
- Row 11: (Knit 2, k2tog) until the end
- Row 13: (Knit 1, k2tog) until the end

Thread remaining stitches and tie a knot at the top. Sew sides together and that's it :-)

Dimensions (more or less): 56 cm total base width and 21 cm long

.. and the finished hat, as modelled by A. and by me :-)
