Hello: After not knitting for ten years, I have just now begun again. I am trying to do the striped baby hat on page 24 of the baby cashmerino 2 pattern book. I am using the babycashmerino wool. My gauge sample turned out perfect. However, I did start that with about five rows of knitting before switching to st st. My sample laid perfectly flat.
I have now begun the cap itself and the instructions say to start with the st stitch. Of COURSE --it is curling badly. HOWEVER, the hat in the picture has a rolled up edge so I am a little confused as it looks as if the pattern wants the edge to curl! How many rows of st stitch before I understand that it will lay flat in the body of the hat?
