Ok so I’m new to knitting. First time using a PATTERN. And I’ve screwed it up.
It’s for a bear hat. That came in a kit from Target.
So the size of the hat is 0-6 months or (6-9 months). Well my son is almost a year old. So I thought, reminder never THINK again that I could just increase the number of cast on stitches and it’d all be hunky dory. Um NOPE.
I had to stockinette 5.5" (I am doing 6" because ya know I’m making it bigger) Well now it I get to the decreasing part and this is where those extra cast ons was not a good idea.
Here’s the pattern and if anyone could PLEASE help a girl out. (no comments on frogging it)
~c/o 66 (74) sts
~work even in st st until hat measures 5" (5.5") from bottom edge, ending on the WS row.
~start decrease rows:
row 1: (RS) k1,*k6(7), k2tog, repeat from * across row, end k1
row 2: (WS) and subsequent EVEN numbered rows: p all sts
row 3: k1, *k5(6), k2tog, repeat from * across row, end k1
row 5: and subsequent ODD numbered rows: continue decreases, always starting and ending the row with k1, and working one st less before hte k2tog’s on each row, until you complete row 8(11)
row 11 (13): k1, k1, k2tog repeat from * to the end of the row, end k1 [18 sts left now]
round 13 (15): k1, *k2tog, repeat from * the end of row, end k1 [10 sts left now]
cut yarn, leaving a 12" tail
Anyway to REWORK the pattern for 79 cast ons?
Forever in your debt,
