Peanut Butter Pie hat - FREE pattern

Even more charity knitting: I picked up a bag of yarn at the Hugathon to make a hat and scarf. I finished the scarf and then whipped up this hat; I was inspired by this peanut butter pie from the Last Crumb Bakery.
The colours were perfect: chocolate brown, creamy beige and frosty whipped white.

And the pattern!

Peanut Butter Pie Hat

Size 5.5mm (US9) straight needles
3 colours of worsted or bulky weight yarn. Mine were: 
     C1: Acrylic white (bulky)
     C2: Bernat Satin Brown (worsted)
     C3: Acrylic cream (worsted)

Rib pattern: Knit 2, Purl 1 across
I slipped the first stitch of every row to get a neater edge
Size: Adult Medium (lots of stretch in this pattern)
Leave long tails when changing colours so you can use that yarn to seam up the hat

With C1: CO 72 sts
Work Knit 2, Purl 1 rib across for 16 rows
Change to C2: work 2 rows in rib pattern 
Change to C3: work 16 rows in rib pattern
Change back to C2: work 6 rows in rib pattern

Decrease as follows:
k2tog, purl 1 across (48)
purl 1 row on wrong side
k2tog across (24)
purl 1 row on wrong side
k2tog across (12)
purl w row on wrong side
k2tog across (6)

Break yarn and draw through remaining sts, pulling tight to close. 
Use yarn ends to close seam of hat. 
Wear and dream of peanut butter pie!
