Round and Round Baby Hat Pattern

At the moment, I feel like a little kid the night before Christmas...I am so giddy about going to Stitches tomorrow with Jackie...*bouncybouncybouncy*

So, what happened with this hat is that I had a very specific hat in mind, but was having trouble finding a pattern that matched, so I wound up winging it. Here is the Ravelry Link.

In case anyone (Julie, I speaking to you :P) wanted to know the pattern, it's pretty much this:

Using DK yarn such as Simplicity by Hikoo by Skacel and size 6 needles:

CO 56 stitches, and join in the round (careful not to twist the stitches)

Knit 6 rounds of garter stitch

Stockinette stitch for 6 rounds
Garter Stitch for 4 Rounds (starting with a purl row)

Continue last two steps until hat measures 4.5" (or 5" if you would like fold brim like I did)

Begin decreases:
K6, K2togeher around
Knit 2 rounds
K5, K2together around
Knit 2 rounds
K4, K2together around
Knit 1 round
K3, K2together around
Knit 1 round
K2, K2together around
Knit 1 round
K1, K2together around
Knit 1 round
K2together around

End hat

Top with topper of choice :) (Pom Pom, Umbilical cord, etc)

And THAT ladies (and gentlemen? do I have any Y chromosomes following me?) is the hat I "designed".  

If anyone wants to test knit it or knits it and discovers and error, please let me know.
