A mistake has been found in Row 1 of the written instructions “body of the hat”. It read (p1, k2, p8, k3) x5, p1 But should read (p1, k3, p8, k3) x5, p1. The charted directions are correct. Sorry for any inconvenience, if you wish to download the pattern again it has been corrected and re-uploaded below. Thanks! These changes were made on September 23rd, 2011 so if you downloaded it previous to this date you will need the updated pattern
