I have a skein of Pure Colonsay Black faced wool and hope I have enough. Trying to knit this hat, I guess I am dense but I am stuck on row 5. Do I knit 1 purl 1 three times, knit 5, purl 1, knit 1 purl 1 two more times, then start over with knit 1 purl 1 three times???? Just finished the hat and love it. I did make the beginning ribbing for several more inches than the pattern states, as the boys like their hats with a big cuff they can pull down if they want.
Now I need to make a scarf to match. Do you have instructions? Thanks so much for all your help getting started on the hat. Hi, I have been reading all your patterns for hats and it seems you do them all similarly. I am a beginner knitter and just finished a definitely harder than beginner pattern for a hat and I knitted it on what I call round needles…knitting needles joined by a plastic thingy sorry my terminology isnt great yet I am confused by your reference to magic loop?
Also why do you have to divided the stitches? When I made the hat I cast on the of stitches and joined them and then the pattern just continued to the point where you started to decrease. Is there a reason for this? I am thoroughly confused. For adult hats, that usually works best until you get to the top and have to make the crown reductions. What I do in that case is move to either double pointed needle or the magic loop method. The magic loop method uses a really long circular needle with a big loop of it pulled out of one side of the knitting the magic loop to allow for knitting in-the-round in a small circumference.
You can read about magic loops at http: Just started to make one in medium size and have one question. Rows just reverse rows , then row 37 and 38 go back to 17 and Is this correct, or should it be 13 and 14? It is correct as written. Rnds 15 and 16 are the widest point of the diamond. I would like to make this hat for my 6 year old son.
I have some dk weight yarn and a 4,5 mm needle. Do you think I should cast on 96 or 80? Thank you for your wonderfull paterns. What do you think? I average 6 stitches to an inch. How should I best adjust this number for the pattern? First of all, I want to be sure you are getting 6 stitches to the inch with that yarn and needles.
Do you tend to knit really tight? The yarn says that its typical gauge on 5. If you do knit tight and really do have a gauge of 6 stitches per inch, this is how I did my calculations — My stockinette gauge is 18 stitches in 4 inches, so 4. The base pattern has 6 repeats of 18 stitches. What is great about this adjusted cast on is that it is 8 repeats of 18 stitches exactly, so no further adjustments necessary.
I am a pretty tight knitter. Might I do better repeating the last couple of rounds or the first, do you think? And thanks again for your reply! May I ask you another gauge question? I re-knit my gauge swatch because I realized, late, that I was supposed to do stockinette instead of just knit. I agree with your math for the calculation of And yes, the next available cast on amount is That is only 6 stitches less than , where is 12 stitches more.
It is a very stretchy hat and could get really big with a cast on. Ah, yes, the stretchiness. I so love this pattern. Love the hat and have started the large one for my husband. For the large one, you should cast on stitches and always have stitches until you begin the crown reductions. The stitches is 6 repeats of 18 stitches, so each line of the body of the pattern has 18 stitches which will be repeated 6 times for each round.
Rnds 3 and 4: A good way to check is to make sure you are exactly at the end of the line of instructions after every 18 stitches. Just want to say thanks for a great pattern. And best of all, both guys loved their hats. So thanks again for sharing your pattern. I would like to make this hat for my husband. I have some dk weight yarn and 4. How many should I cast on?
Thank you for your wonderful patterns. Cast on and follow the directions for the large size. With DK and 4. You should probably knit a few extra rounds of ribbing to add some height since the DK stitches will also be shorter.
There is a straight needle version of this pattern — http: Love the ease of this pattern even for me a fairly new knitter. That is an alternative to double pointed needles for doing small in-the-round knitting. A smaller circular works great on hats until you get into the crown reductions. I loved this pattern — I made a hat for myself in blue. I was now hoping to make a matching scarf. I feel like this would be a good pattern to adapt to a scarf, or even a circle scarf.
I was wondering if you had any suggestions as to how to do that, or if you had seen a pattern for a scarf with a similar pattern that you could share? Thank yo so much for your help. The hat is a 16 stitch repeat the medium version. For two repeats cast on 36, or for three cast on Add an extra k1, p1 to the beginning and end of each row. Many people have completed these hats without noting errors. Simple to follow the instructions. Merry Christmas and thank you!!
