The watch fire (Varðeldur) pattern consists of 16 sts per pattern repeat. This means you'll have to make sure that you increase to a number divisible by 16 after the Rib. Note that the watch fire pattern acts like cables and crunches up a bit, because of the purl sts separating the flames.

Abbreviations and techniques:

st stitch

k knit

p purl

KLL Increase; choose one that does not create a purl st on the RS. knit left loop use LH needle to pick up stitch below st just knitted, then knit into it (one stitch increased) see video

(k, yo, k) double increase; k1, yarn over, k1 in the same stitch (two stitches increased)

cdd centrered double decrease; slip 2 sts knitwise onto right needle as one

st, knit the next st and then pass the slipped sts back over the newly knit

st on the right needle (two stitches decreased)

Pattern:

Cast on 52 of sts very loosely with the smaller needles using long-tail cast-on or preferred method, and join to knit in the round mark beginning of round with a stitch marker if needed.

Round

1 13: rib; K1, P1 repeat

throughout round

Round 14: increase round: increase to 64 sts and start knitting with the larger needle

Round 15: setup round for watch fire pattern *k1, p2, k11, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 16: *(k, yo, k), p2, k4, cdd, k4, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 17: *k3, p2, k9, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 18: *k1, (k, yo, k), k1, p2, k3, cdd, k3, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 19: *k5, p2, k7, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 20: *k2, (k, yo, k), k2, p2, k2, cdd, k2, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 21: *k7, p2, k5, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 22: *k3, (k, yo, k), k3, p2, k1, cdd, k1, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 24: *k4, (k, yo, k), k4, p2, cdd, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 25: *k11, p2, k1, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Now you have half pattern, you've decreased one candle flame and increased another and you switch:

Pattern: Cast on 52 of sts very loosely with the smaller needles using long-tail cast-on or

Round 26: *k4, cdd, k4, p2, (k, yo, k), p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 27: *k9, p2, k3, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 28: *k3, cdd, k3, p2, k1, (k, yo, k), k1, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 29: *k7, p2, k5, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 30: *k2, cdd, k2, p2, k2, (k, yo, k), k2, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 31: *k5, p2, k7, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 32: *k1, cdd, k1, p2, k3, (k, yo, k), k3, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 33: *k3, p2, k9, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 34: *cdd, p2, k4, (k, yo, k), k4, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 35: *k1, p2, k11, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

This completes the watch fire pattern. You have a number of full flames, and the same number of half flames

Repeat round 16 25 to get one and a half pattern repeat

Now your hat is tall enough and it's time to start decreasing. The decreasing is first done by simply omitting the increases and just doing k1 between the purls, while decreasing the rest of the flames:

Decreasing:

Round 1: *k1, p2, k4, cdd, k4, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 2: *k1, p2, k9, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 3: *k1, p2, k3, cdd, k3, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 4: *k1, p2, k7, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 5: *k1, p2, k2, cdd, k2, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 6: *k1, p2, k5, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 7: *k1, p2, k1, cdd, k1, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 8: *k1, p2, k3, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 9: *k1, p2, cdd, p2* repeat * to * throughout round

Round 10: *k1, p2* repeat * to * throughout round UNTIL the very last p st, which is slipped to the left hand side of the circular and is now the beginning st of the next round.

Round 11: cdd repeat throughout round (the sts should be lined up in groups of (p k p), so the center st is a k)

Break yarn and thread through remaining sts, pull tight and weave ends and wash the hat.
