Round 30: Ch 1, *Fpsc around the next 8 sts, Dec Fpsc*, repeat *to* around, join with sl st to beginning Fpsc post. = 72 Fpsc

Round 36: Ch 1, *Fpsc around the next 2 sts, Dec Fpsc*, repeat *to* around, join with sl st to beginning Fpsc post. = 24 Fpsc

Round 37: Ch 1, *Fpsc around the next 1 sts, Dec Fpsc*, repeat *to* around, join with sl st to beginning Fpsc post. = 16 Fpsc

Round 38: Ch 1, Dec Fpsc around, join with sl st to beginning Fpsc post. = 8 Fpsc

Finish off leaving 12 ” tail

With yarn needle, weave tail in and out of the last 8 sts of round 38 and draw closed. Secure and weave in end.

Working with beginning tail, use yarn needle to secure and finish off.

Make Pom Pom if desired and secure to top of beanie.
