Another day another hat

This is a knit hat made with long 5.5mm needle

Basic rib knit. cast on 74 stitches. Knit 5 rows then knit one row, purl the next row, and knit the next two rows until your piece reaches 5 1/2 inches.

I followed the ribbed pattern while decreasing. It went something like this K1(k7, K2tog) K1- 66 stitches. Basically I just knitted 1 stitch, knitted 7 stitches, knitted 2 stitches together, knitted 1 stitch until 18 stitches were left on my needle. I didn’t follow the directions entirely as stated on the package.

Once I got to that many stitches I knitted 1 stitches, then 2 stitches together until 10 stitches were left on my needle (I think). I cast off the stitches, and sewed the seam together.

It came out hat-like so I am not complaining.
