I made this up for the Nerd Wars on Ravelry. One of the challenges this month was to make something to go along with a Haiku (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haiku)
This is my project and I needed a pattern from ravelry so I am going to share :)
Hat fits a 21-22 inch head
For this I used Knit Picks Shine Worsted and some other knit picks that I think is discontinued, but any worsted weight will work.
Needles size 8 and 9mm circular and size 9 DPN's
With size 8 cast on 72sts join to knit in the round
Knit 2, purl 1 for about 1 inch
Using contrasting color and size 9 needles, knit 5 rows
