Harry Potter POA Style Striped Hat

Supplies:
1 skein any worsted-weight yarn in main color (MC) (in pictures, green or burgandy)
1 skein any worsted-weight yarn in contrasting color (CC) (in pictures, gray or yellow)
(Note: one hat will take about 100 yards of yarn total, I don't have an exact amount.)
1 US Sz. 7 circular needle
1 set of four US Sz. 7 Double Pointed Needles (DPNs)
Stitch Marker (I use a ring or keyring)
Yarn needle

Gauge:
5 sts = 1", 6 rows = 1" (Gauge is approximate)

Sizing:
Small - 20" (Other sizes in parenthesis)
Medium - 21 1/4"
Large - 22 1/2"
X-Large - 24"
Sizes are approximate.

Instructions:
With Circular Needle, cast on 90 (96, 102, 108) sts in MC.
Join sts and place marker.
Work in K2P2 rib for first seven rnds.
Switch to K every rnd for next 20 rnds. (This produces a hat that is approximately 10," which is fine for people with large heads. If you want a smaller hat, I reccommend taking out about 10 rnds from this portion of the hat. I have not tried this yet, since both hats
Change to CC, K 3 rnds.
Change to MC, K 5 rnds.
Change to CC, K 3 rnds.
Change to MC, divide sts onto three DPN's. Begin decreasing top of hat as follows:
Rnd 1: *K 13 (14, 15, 16), k2tog, repeat from * to end of rnd.
Rnd 2: K
Rnd 3: *K 12 (13, 14, 15), k2tog, repeat from * to end of rnd.
Rnd 4: K
Rnd 5: *K 11 (12, 13, 14), k2tog, repeat from * to end of rnd.
Rnd 6: K
Repeat in this manner until 48 sts remain (if you have divided your sts evenly on the DPNs, there should be 16 sts on each needle at this point), then decrease as follows:
Rnd 1: *K 6, k2tog, repeat from * to end of rnd.
Rnd 2: *K 5, k2tog, repeat from * to end of rnd...
Continue in this manner until 6 sts remain. Pull the hat off of your DPNs, and draw tail end of yarn through the final 6 sts. Secure in a knot inside the hat.

Pattern adapted from Simple Roll Brim hat, originally found on knit.about.com (no longer available). Striping adapted from POA scarf style found at knit.atypically.net.

k. so I know this has absolutely nothing to do with the hats but I had to laugh at the icon. I just watched that episode last night. Hehe. Hiro makes me laugh a lot.
