Baby’s hat

Hi I’m
Knitting a baby’s hat Totally stumped after knitting the rib this is the first and 2nd line I have 78! Stitches ? k3, p3, k1, p3 rep to ending last rep with k1 (k2, p1, k4, p3, p1).

Row 2. Knit all the knit sts and purl all the purl sts.

Can anyone understand this ?

Thanks Trisha

What is the name of your pattern and the designer?
Are there any increases or decreases on the last row of rib?

Row 1: (k3,p3,k1,p3) rep ending last rep with k1 (k2,p1,k4,p4)
Is that the way row 1 works out? Ten sts in the repeat the last repeat 12sts?

It’s Little Ladders Baby Beanie Hat by Mary E Yes it doesn’t work out with 78 stitches and the next is knit all the knit stitches and purl all the purl stitches ??

I think you will need to knit 6 repeats of pattern k3, p3, k1, p3 that will be 60 stitches
Than k3, p3, k1, and finish with k2, p1, k4, p3, p1 it is 78 stitches
It will help you to use markers after each repeats so you keep tracking repeats
Next row is simple, just knit what you see purl every purled stitch, knit every knitted stitch.

Ah Thanks for your suggestion I will try


Did you get the Little Ladders Baby Beanie Hat Pattern figured out? If not I have an idea.

Hi Yes I did It was quite an easy pattern when I go into it Loving this forum so many people helping each other Trisha
