Twisted Baby Hat

I recently purchased an awesome pattern called Twisty Trousers by Lynne of Cabbages and Kings.

I thought it was super cute and wanted a matching hat, but couldn't find a pattern that I really liked, so I made this Twisted Baby Hat. Here's the pattern:

Twisted Baby Hat
Yarn: Any worsted weight yarn approx 75 yds
Needles: US Size 4 and 7 DPNs (gauge is not terribly important as the hat is stretchy)
Cable needle or extra DPN

With smaller needles, CO 64 sts and join in the round (careful to not twist your sts) and place marker.
Round 1 - 10: *K2, P2* Repeat around.
Round 11: Switch to larger needles *K6, P2.* Repeat around.
Round 12 - 17: *K6, P2* Repeat around.

[Cable Section]
Round 18: C6F (Slip 3 sts onto DPN or cable needle as if to purl and hold in the front.) K3, K3 sts from DPN, P2. Continue in C6F, P2 pattern around.
Round 19 - 24: *K6, P2* Repeat around.
Round 25: *C6F, P2* Repeat around.
Round 26 - 28: *K6, P2* Repeat around.
Round 29: *K6, P2tog* Repeat around.
Round 30 - 36: *K6, P1* Repeat around.

[Begin Decreases]
