Watermelon Preemie Hat

Knit on size 1 dp needles using hand dyed, self-striping watermelon with seeds sock yarn bought from KnitPurlGirl on Etsy last March. It is 75% Superwash merino wool and 25% nylon.

I cast on 60 stitches, did a k2,p2 rib for 10 rounds, knit 20 rows in stockinette stitch then decreased as follows:
Round 1: k4, k2 tog
Round 2: k
Round 3: k3, k2 tog
Round 4: k
Round 5: k2, k2 tog
Round 6: k
Round 7: k1, k2 tog
Round 8: k
Round 9: k2 tog
Round 10: k2 tog
Make i-cord. Weave in ends.

I realized after I finished the first sock I made with this yarn, that I would have plenty to make this hat so I finished the hat and now I'm starting the second sock.
