Football Hat recipe

I don't know who originally designed and knit this hat, but I want to make some of these and took notes of what it looks like: 

Cast on 70 in the round.  Knit 9 rows in brown (9 Vs) in Stockinette, which makes a curled edge

Knit 4 rows cream

Knit 25 rows brown

Knit 4 rows cream

Knit 3 rows brown

Begin decrease rows: 10 k2tog (right slanting) spaced 7 stitches apart, Knit 5, k2tog ten times.  Then knit one row plain.  Knit 4, k2 tog.  Repeat till you are down to the last 12 or so stitches then just keep k2tog each row till you're down to two stitches.  Run the tail through those two and seam it into the inside of the hat. 

The seam part in cream covers four stitches, in the middle of the Vs. So really, it covers three upside down Vs.  It starts on the fourth row of brown, and leaves four rows at the top.  The extra stitching part covers two upside down Vs on either side, every four rows, total of five horizontal stitches.
