Body of the broadway knit beanie:

Using smaller size needles, cast on 80 stitches or any other number that is divisible by 16.  Join to knit in the round. Place marker and be careful not to twist stiches. Rib k2, p2 until hat reaches 16 cm if you want a folded brim, or 5-6 cm if you want a hat without brim. I am heading the hat with folded brim.

Round 1: [k10, p2, k2, p2] – repeat till the ends of round.

Round 2: [k2, p6, k2, p2, k2, p2] – repeat till the ends of round.
