Black hat for Tor

Sending off some knitted items to my grand kids,
I made another hat last night.
It was quick and easy, and here is what I did:

Yarn: Nature Spun from Brown Sheep Company
Needle US 6 (4mm)
Using a round needle, CO (legg opp) 80.
Knit 2, pearl 2, for 1 1/2" (3-4 cm)

Over 6 rows, do this easy pattern:
*3 rows: knit 2, pearl 2 (2 rette, 2 vrange)
3 rows: knit ( 3 omganger rett)*

Repeat from * to * until you have 6 1/2" (ca.16 cm) all together,
last 3 rows being knit (rett).

Decrease next row like this:
knit 2, pearl 2 together, knit 2, pearl 2 together.... keep going...
the 2 next rows, knit 2, pearl 1...
knit 3 rows .
Decrease next row like this:
knit 2 together, pearl 1, knit 2 together, pearl 1....
the next 2 rows, knit 1, pearl 1...
knit 3 rows.

Degrease next rows like this:
knit 2 together, knit 2 together......
knit one row,
knit 2 together, knit 2 together,
pull tread through, and weave it in.

The pattern look good on the back side also...
