Spiral beanie pattern

I created this to fit all of my hair inside. 



Cast on 84 stitches on the 16" size seven needle and join in the round. Knit in k1 p1 patter for the ribbing until you reach desired width. Switch to size ten 16" circular. 
1. *K1, k1fb* for next row (126 stitches total) 

2. *K5, p1*
3. Repeat
4. *k4, p1, k1*
5. Repeat
6. *k3, p1, k2*
7. Repeat
8. *k2, p1, k3*
9. Repeat
10. *k1, p1, k5*
11. Repeat
12. *p1, k5*
13. Repeat

Repeat rows 2-13 until you reach desired height. Mine was about 8" after I did it three times, then decrease by:
1. *K5, p1, k5, p1, k4, k2tog* (119)
2. *K5, p1, k5, p1, k3, k2tog* (112)
3. *K4, p1, k5, p1, k3, k2tog* (105)
4. *K4, p1, k5, p1, k2, k2tog* (98)
5. *K3, p1, k5, p1, k2, k2tog* (91)
6. *K3, p1, k5, p1, k1, k2tog* (85)
7. *K2, p1, k5, p1, k1, k2tog* (77)
8. *K2, p1, k5, p1, k2tog* (70)
9. *K1, p1, k5, p1, k2tog* (63)
10. *K1, p1, k5, k2tog* (56)
11. *p1, k5, k2tog* (49)
12. *p1, K4, k2tog*
13. *K4, k2tog*
