Cut the yarn leaving 10 cm tail. Using a hook or a yarn needle thread the tail through the remaining 20 stitches. Weave in ends.

Now it is time to get rid of waste yarn. Find the first stitch, cut the waste yarn and place the live loop onto your needle.  Repeat for all other stitches, unravel the chain and pick up all stitches. Double count your stitches to make sure you picked up all 92.

Attach a new or same color yarn.

Round 1: knit all stitches around.

Repeat Round 1 for the same number of rounds or length as the first layer.

Pay attention that you must weave in all ends before you close the second crown.

As we are knitting in the opposite direction now the stitch markers for the crown must be placed in the following way:

22 sts, pm, 1 sts, pm, 22 sts, pm, 1 sts, pm, 22 sts, pm, 1 sts, pm, 22 sts, pm, 1 sts, pm

Round 1: [k2tog, k18, skpo, k1] – repeat 4 times.

Round 2-3: knit all stitches around.

Round 4: [k2tog, k16, skpo, k1] – repeat 4 times.

Round 5-6: knit all stitches around.

Round 7: [k2tog, k14, skpo, k1] – repeat 4 times.

Round 8: knit all stitches around.

Round 9: [k2tog, k12, skpo, k1] – repeat 4 times.

Round 10: knit all stitches around.

Go on making decreases as for the first layer. Close the hat’s crown and weave in end on the right side, inserting the needles underneath the remaining stitches at least two or three times. You can also use the tail to attach the inner and the upper layers.

Once you finish knitting the hat it might look perfectly nice, just wash it and dry flat to even out the tension between all the stitches.
