Simple Crazy Sexy Wool Knit Hat Pattern

This will be your most favorite hat project ever.  Not kidding. I can't get enough of this hat.  The large needles and awesome wool yarn make this the coziest and quickest hat you'll ever knit!

Materials
Size 12 mm 16" circular knitting needles
1 skein of Wool and the Gang Crazy Sexy Wool (Color shown is Stonewash Blue)
1 Stitch Marker
Needles to weave in ends
Scissors
Fur pom pom (or pom pom of your choice)

Gauge: 8 STS and 12 rows = 4 inche

Note: This hat is designed to be a bit slouchy.  To make it more snug fitting against your head, decrease the overall length by an inch or so (try it on as you go along to see how it fits) and you can also decease the number of CO STS to 38 instead of 40..  

Instructions:
CO 40 STS and join in the round, placing a marker, being careful to not twist the stitches
Row 1: [K1, P1] to end
Rows 2-8: Repeat Row 1
Next Row: K to end
Continue to K each round until piece measures approximately 9 inches from CO
Next Row: [K2TOG] to end (STS decrease to 20 STS)
Cut about 6 inches of yarn and weave yarn through all STS.  Pull tight and tie off.
Attach fur pompom or another pom of your choice.
Enjoy!
