Hat Recipe for Peggy

My Kentucky cyber friend, Peggy, asked for the pattern of the hat on my last post. I sort of made it up as I went along. So here it is, Peg. Hope I can make it clear.

I held two strands of DK to worsted handspun together for the whole hat.
Cast on 105 stitches on US# 4 circular needle. (I always start off with a smaller size needle 'cause I always use my alpaca which doesn't have a lot of memory)
Knit the pattern for an inch or so and change to US#7
Row 1 - Slip 1, Knit 2, Pass Slipped Stitch Over (psso) the 2 knits, Purl 2
Row 2 - K 1, Yarn Over, K 1, P 2
Row 3 - K 3, P 2
Row 4 - K 3, P 2
Knit pattern for about 6 1/2 inches and begin decrease.

For this decrease, I think I first knitted 2 together to make 104 stitches.
Round 1 - Knit 6, Knit 2 together to end of round
Round 2 - Knit
Round 3 - Knit 5, Knit 2 together
Round 4 - Knit
I continued this to end, somewhere changing to double ended needles.
