The hat that the lead singer was wearing!
When I first saw the video for Decode, by Paramore, I immediately became obsessed with the hat that the lead singer was wearing! I stared at video screen caps for a couple of days, than decided to cast on and try to make the hat! The first version was good, but I’ve since decided that it wasn’t quite as floppy as the one worn in the video. This new version is a little longer, causing a bit more slouch in the hat. It’s very comfortable, and very easy to knit! Those wanting to try an easy cable pattern will have a lot of fun with this hat!

I used 2 skeins of Jiffy Lion Brand in Violet. Any lighter bulky weight or heavier worsted weight should work.

*note- I didn't put the bobbles in specific places. I just scattered them throughout the hat, in the purl sections only.

The bobble stitch pattern is:
knit, purl, knit into 1 stitch
turn, purl 3
turn knit 3
turn purl 3
turn, pass st 2nd and 3rd over first st, then knit into the back of that st. Continue with purl sts.

    Repeat this decrease pattern, decreasing 1 st before and after each cable, until you end on a row 6, switching to dpn's when necessary.
    Next row: Knit 2 together, until 8 sts remain.
    Cut yarn, leaving a 10"tail. Thread with tapestry needle, and run through live stitches, pulling taunt.

after making this hat, here's my advice to anyone who wants to: the most tedious part is the 4-inch band at the beginning. once you get past that, you'll fly through the rest Happy

Cables aren't that hard, Twizzler, assuming you have a needle to lift the stitches for the cable onto, they almost make themselves. I say give it a try! You never know until you make the attempt.
