Hi! This elephant hat pattern by Kathleen Taylor is just the most outrageous thing I’ve knitted so far (IT’S GORGEOUS!)
BUT … I’ve done the lower half of the hat, the big elephants. Now I’m doing the 2nd chart which is the little elephants…
and since I’m new to this sort of… um, when I did my first round of the elephants legs I was short stitches. So I count them and there’s only 16. If you look at the chart it has those steps going up the sides and each time the stitches are less. How do I keep 18 stitches in the repeat as I go up the chart?
Do you have to count down and add on white spaces if you know what I mean… here’s the link: It’s chart two I don’t get.
(If that link doesn’t work here is her page and then you click on the elephant pattern and it enlarges)
