Cut yarn leaving 8 inch tail, thread through yarn needle and pull through all 6 sts remaining twice, pull tight, hide string. Dome is done!

Cuff

Provisional CO 80 sts with size 8 kneedles. (This part is worked flat so it can be straight needles)
Row 1: K,k,k,k,k,k, repeat ( :D )
Row 2: P, p, p, p, repeat.
Continue in stockinette stitch for 3 inches, ending with a purl row. Fold the bottom (provisional cast on) up so that the knit side is out.
Pick up one stitch from the provisional cast on and knit it together with the live stitches (stitches on your needle), *pick up the next stitch
from the provisional cast on and knit it together with your next live stitch. Slip the fist knit stitch on the right needle over the second stitch on the
right needle, repeat from * around.
We're knitting together the top and bottom of the cuff and casting it off at the same time. I hope I've made it clear how to do that.

Sew the cuff to the bottom of the dome. I did this by sewing 4 stitches then skiping one stitch from the dome only and sewing the next four.
This drops the 20 extra sts that are on the dome evenly.
Hide all your strings and your done!
