Harry Potter- Order of the Phoenix Hat

What a cool hat for all your Harry Potter Fans! I may have to knit one up! And a quote from Harry:
"You sort of start thinking anything's possible if you've got enough nerve."
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Yarn: 1 skein of malabrigo merino wool
Tools: #7 Single Points, Tapestry Needle

Sizing: 22 stitches for babies, 66 stitches for kids & adults

Cast on/Brim (Kids Size/66 stitches)
Cast on 22/66 stitches and work 20 rows, knitting both ways to create garter stitch brim
Body of hat start stockinette and knit for 20 rows (for adult sizes, or for hats that need
to be more hat, less beanie, add another 20 rows, for a total of 40 before you start to
decrease for the crown.
Create crown (decrease)
Next row - knit 2 together, knit 1, knit 2 together
Next row - purl 2 together, purl 1, purl 2 together
Repeat above set 2 times
Next row: knit 2 together every stitch
Next row: purl 2 together every stitch
Continue knitting 2 together till you have 6-8 stitches on the needles.

Leaving a really long tail, cut your yarn. Thread tail onto tapestry needle, thread through remaining stitches on needle and pull to close stitches together.

Fold hat so that stockinette right side is facing in, stitch from crown to bottom of brim using tapestry needle threaded with tail. Tie off, fold right side out.
