I want to knit a hat using this pattern from Schachenmayr called Hat and Loop with Lace Pattern, S8636 A/B
It’s lovely and I may even knit the loop if I can figure it out.
My problem is with the part that says:
Cont. with 4.5-5.5 mm needles and basic patt. = motif of 16 to 20 sts.
I don’t understand the 16 to 20 part. Why is there a range? It seems that after the first row, there will be 24 stitches…
I’m wondering if the M1P will help this… but what about the 4 stitches that are on the cable needle… when is it ever 16 sts…?
