Ann Norling Strawberry Hat

Making this adorable hat…I’m at the point to start the leaves…does it matter where the leaves start…hard to understand the directions…

The chart begins the leaves with 4sts in the main color and then the first green stitch. This puts the jog at the beginning of the round in the area of main color between the leaves. You could begin anywhere you want (as long as you’re working a multiple of 8sts) but beginning as the chart shows is a good way to avoid an obvious jog.
I love this little hat and have made many variations including a pumpkin and blueberry in addition to the strawberry for a set of triplets.
