I’m trying to work on a hat with earflaps, but not understanding the pattern so well. Can someone please help?
Cast on 88 stitches. place round marker & join.
Note: Earflaps are worked in short rows, w/remaining sts left on needle.
Work approx. 2.75" in stockinette stitch.
Begin working the first earflap as follows: P8,k21, turn
Next row: P21, turn
Next row: K20, turn
Continue working short rows, working 1 less stitch on each row, until 4 knit stitches remain.
Next row: P4, turn
New row: K5, turn
Continue in rows working 1 more stitch at the end of each row, ending last row with K21. First earflap is complete.
Continuing on, P30, K21, turn
Work 2nd earflap the same as 1st earflap on 21 stitches just worked
Continuing on, P8 to the end of round.
Change to US 7 circular needle and work in stockinette until the same depth as lining.
So far i’ve casted on 88 sts and started knitting in the round using stockinette stitch.
i’m not sure how to continue with the earflaps and now sue what it means when it says “working 1 less stitch on each row” and "working 1 more stitch at the end of each row.
