Hi,

I haven’t knit this cute little hat but I looked into the pattern and here is basically what you do:

Let’s say, for our discussion, that you are knitting the smallest size.

After all the increasing, you will have 126 stitches on the needle. Divide that by 3 for each little ‘ear’ or ‘point’.

You will work each ear by itself. That’s why you are told to put the first 42 st on dpn’s. Work the ear to the length required or desired. Bind off/cinch off last stitch.

Then put another 42st on dpn’s, and repeat that ear.

Do the same for the final 42 st. Now you have your 3 ears!

You didn’t state what messed you up: if it’s the [I]dividing thing [/I](explained above),

or if its the [I]decreasing thing on the 42 st.[/I]

[U]I will explain Round 1[/U]:

Here’s what it says: Rnd 1: [[B]K5[/B] (6, 7) [B]K2tog[/B]] 6 times – 36 (42, 48) sts.

Translated for the smallest size, that means “repeat (K5, K2Tog) [I]6 times in a row.”[/I] Then your ear will have just 36 stitches remaining.

Rounds 2-6 are just plain knit, with no decreasing.

Hi, thank you, here is the part that I don’t understand. At this part:

[B]Translated for the smallest size, that means “repeat (K5, K2Tog) 6 times in a row.” Then your ear will have just 36 stitches remaining.

Rounds 2-6 are just plain knit, with no decreasing. [/B]

okay, I did the k5, k2tog 6 times. then what do I knit for rows 2-6? just the 36 remianing stitches, or all 126 stitches?

Also, how many dpn am I working with? Plus, how will the ‘ears’ join onto the whole hat?

Thanks for you help!
