I’m pretty new at this, i only knit 1/4 of a scarf so far (then i got lazy and stitched it together, so it’s more a collar than a scarf, but looks cool though). I did it in series of knits and purls one after another, and in reverse order in a second row, so it looks like a chess board.
Now I want to make a matching hat in the same technique, and I found this pattern: http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/kpatt05.htm
I did the sample and 60 stitches match my head, though they are a bit looser than those on the pattern. I think my circular needles are size 6, I’m not sure about the yarn, but it’s way thinner than the needle.
Do you think decreases on the pattern are gonna do it for me? Since the circumference is the same.
(i know it’s gonna mess up the pattern, but i’m gonna deal with it on the go, now i’m only concerned about general shape)
thanks in advance.
P.S. sorry about my English, it’s my third language.
