To make a jacquard pattern, one needs to knit seven rows of knit stitches of blue threads, then one is to reduce the number of stitches.
To do this, one must divide all the stitches into four groups of 18 stitches in each one, having marked borders of groups with a thread of the contrast color. In each row, one is to knit two stitches together in front of the border and after it. When only eight stitches remain, one needs to draw them tight and attach from the back side of the hat.

As soon as only four stitches remain on the needles, they must be tied with a thread. The outer hat is formed similarly, only the number of stitches is increased by two and it must be made a little bigger in height. Then the hats must be turned to the face, its edges must be joined and treated with a crochet. One can also decorate the hat with a pompom, laces or other elements.
