Greetings! I am new to the knittinghelp forum, but have watched the videos and browsed patterns here for quite some time.
I recently came across a pattern from a knitting blog for a woman’s hat. The basic pattern is as follows:
size 8 circulars and or dpn’s
Cast on 81 stitches and place marker at beginning of round
Do 2 rows of K1 P1 ribbing
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: K1, (yo, k2tog) 4 times, K10 repeat from * end (yo, k2tog) 4 times
Row 3: Knit
Row 4: (ssk, yo) 4 times, K10* repeat from * end K1
Row 5: Knit
If I ssk yo as in row 4, 8, and on and on, won’t I be adding stitches? Do I need to change this in the pattern?
Another problem I am running in to is that I decreased the original cast on so the hat will fit a baby. Obviously, I should have thought that I would need to amend the rest of the pattern to adjust, but didn’t think of it until now. Any tips on how to do that?
Thank you for reading!
