I have made this hat a few times. I used comperable yarn in weight. I do think that decrease rows 3 and 5 are transposed, only in the decrease amount. 3rd row should knit 6 in between , and in the 5th row you should knit 5 in between . The other decrease rows follow suit. If the yarn is striped or patterned, it really won't make much difference, but a solid color looks nicer with an even decreace. IMHO Great easy pattern!

What a cute and easy hat pattern! I am looking forward to trying this pattern before this fall.

Well, I don't think it would go over well in July, but this hat would still get a lot of use! The colors make it a little fun and quirky and just right for the right teenager as well as the right adult. The only time you'd have to pay much attention is in the decrease rows, otherwise it looks really easy.
