Editing to add the rest of the pattern and more questions.
On the increase round am I increasing every OTHER stitch? If so, wouldn’t I have 102 stitches not 136?
Working on a hat with the following linen stitch. I am using different yarn than the pattern and therefore have more stitches. I thought I was ok and that the linen stitch needed to be worked over an odd number of stitches. However an odd number of stitches would make Row 1 end on a knit stitch and not a sl1wyf. Am I wrong?
Using Long tail method cast on 68 (72 sts for a bigger head/bulkier hair) sts with darker yarn.
Join in a round, carefully not to twist and place a marker in indicate the round beginning.
Start the twisted ribbing pattern, which is :
all rounds: k1tbl, p1 repeat throughout the round.
Work 10-13 rounds and then switch to contrasting yarn.
k1, k1fb repeat to the last 2 sts, k1fb , k1fb.
Next round start the linen stitch pattern:
Round 1-2: * k1, sl1wyf* continue throughout the round.
Round 3-4: sl1wyf, k1 continue throughout the round.
