That tempting self-striping yarn. You keep buying it and buying it. And buying it some more. The original small stash grows.

Rib for a while, and then work a few rounds of garter stitch to break it up. And back to ribs. A few decreases, and done.
The hat is sized for either DK- or worsted-weight yarn.
The instructions assume that you know how to knit, purl, and work in the round. If not, check out the videos at www.reallyclear.com.
