This is my Figure 8 Hat. This hat is a one-size, Adult small/medium,hat pattern but could easily be adjusted. I used a DK weight polyester yarn I had lying around (I buy up cheap yarn to make toys for my kids and the kids in the family with.)The faux-cables make this a very elastic fabric. All slipped stitches are slipped purlwise
sts = stitches
k =  knit
p = purl
yo = yarn over
sl 1= slip one
k2tog = knit 2 together
p2tog = purl 2 together
psso = pass slipped stitch over

With size 8 dpns(or favorite circular method) Cast on 80 sts and mark begining of round.
k2, p2 ribbing for 1 inch.
faux-cable pattern for 6 inches

Cut yarn long enough to  finish. Pull through remaining sts. Weave in ends.
Tada! Figure 8 Hat!

I don't care what you do with the finished object, sell it, donate it, give it to your best friend :) Just please don't claim the pattern as yours.
