Hi there,

Please pardon my new knittiness but I can't seem to make this work. Correct me if I'm wrong but is it, "K2tog, yo, K2tog, yo...right until end? Every second Yo row, I end up with one stitch left and when I get to row 39, I have way more stitches than 18.

Lindsey said...

(K2tog yo)(k2to yo) is right, except on Row 30 where there aren't any yo's. That should cut the number of stitches in half, from 72 to 36. Then in Row 39 the stitches reduce from 36 to eighteen, halved again.

With an even number of stitches you shouldn't end up with a spare stitch, unless you're missing a yo at some point or aren't knitting two together. A missing yo is easier to see than a missed K2tog, though.

I knitted this to surprise a friend in a nice chunky ecru. It's really stunning. Thanks so much for posting this. I'm doing a scarf to match.

Patti said...

I'm a little confused by the term "plain stitch" Do you mean purl?

Patti said...

I figured out what a "plain row" is, so I've made two hats. It's a great pattern. Thanks for posting it.

Jenna said...

I knit this hat perfectly. I had the most beautiful turquoise yarn and the firkin thing is too small for my head!!I tried blocking, and stretching. No Go.

the following rows start with yarn forward to start the row????

Thanks for the awesome pattern! I'm on my third one and will probably end up with a weeks worth of hats at this rate.

Great hat! I would love to knit this for friend of mine. One question though - at the beginning you said 8 rows of garter stitch but then you state 1 row knit, 1 row purl, which is stockinette stitch. Which is correct? Thanks!

Lindsey said...

Jennifer, the hat is worked in the round so it needs to be 1 row knit & 1 row purl to get garter stitch. All knit rows would produce stocking stitch.
