- 2 skeins of worsted weight yarn (choose your favorite color)
- A pair of size 8 circular knitting needles (16 inches long)
- A set of size 8 double-pointed knitting needles
- A tapestry needle for weaving in ends
- A stitch marker

Knit the Ribbing
Knit 2, purl 2, in a rib stitch pattern, for 2 inches (5 cm).
Knit the Body
Knit in stockinette stitch (knit every round) until the hat measures 8 inches (20 cm) from the cast on edge.
Decrease for the Crown
Change to the double-pointed knitting needles when the circumference of the hat becomes too small for the circular needles. Begin decreasing as follows:
- Round 1: Knit 8, knit 2 together, repeat to the end of the round (72 stitches remaining).
- Round 2: Knit all stitches.
- Round 3: Knit 7, knit 2 together, repeat to the end of the round (64 stitches remaining).
- Round 4: Knit all stitches.
- Round 5: Knit 6, knit 2 together, repeat to the end of the round (56 stitches remaining).
- Round 6: Knit all stitches.
- Continue in this manner, decreasing every other round until you have 8 stitches remaining.
Finish the Crown
Cut the yarn, leaving a long tail. Thread the tail through the remaining stitches and pull tightly to close the top of the hat. Weave in all ends with a tapestry needle and your crown model beret
