Hat

With straight knitting needles, cast on 22 sts.  Work in double knitting as follows:

Row 1:  * sl 1 purlwise with yarn in front, k1, rep from * across.

Rep this row until at least 7 feet of yarn remain (no less).

Prepare to Bind Off:  Using large spare needle, * sl the first st and hold in back; with size 35 needle, sl the next st and hold in front; rep from * until 11 sts are on spare needle held in back and 11 sts are on size 35 needle and held in front.  Sl the 11 sts on size 35 needle to the other size 35 needle so needle faces your right.

Bind Off:  * K1, wrap yarn around RH needle and slip st just knit over it as if binding off; rep from * until 21 sts have been bound off.  K1, cut yarn and pull through last st on needle. Knot all ends to prevent unravelling.
