So I am making a baby sweater, hat and booties for a friends baby. The hat is made and sewn together. It has a paten that gives almost a wavy edge to the bottom. Now the instructions say to make a neckband. I am a little confused bout how to do this. So here are the instructions
“Pick up and knit 60 sts across lower edge.
Row 1:, Knit working 2 sts tog 4 times in center back.
Row 2: Knit, working the first 2 sts tog, the last 2 sts tog and 2 sts tog twice in center back
Row 3: Knit, working the first 2 sts tog, the last 2 sts tog and 2 sts tog once in center back. Cast off. Sew on ribbon ties.”
I am a very confused about whether I am supposed to pick up stitches all along the border underneath? And how do I decide where to start as the hat is sewn together (the prior instructions said to sew them). Also the lower edge of the hat was knitted with 76 sts. And won’t this mess up the curved wavy edge?
Help. I can try to attach a picture of the hat is possible.
Thanks so much
