I need some help. I’ve never really created a pattern before but i would like to make a hate from this beautiful bulky alpaca i have. The problem is, i have no idea how to calculate how many stitches i need, etc. I would like it to have it long enough to roll up about 3 - 4 inches. I think i want it to start in a 2x2 rib but maybe have thre rest in stokinette. Finally, i’d like to do it in the round and am not sure how to get those decreases in. Any pointers? patterns out there? Thanks so much for the help!
