are there increases anywhere in this? i cast on 40 sts and if i k10 k2tog, i can only do it 3 times within 40 sts.

perhaps i'm doing something wrong, but i just wondered.

thanks!

I've fixed this pattern, you have to k9, k2tog for the first round of decreases.


beyond sorry to everyone who got tripped up by this!

I tried k9, k2tog and it still didn't workout. For that to work I think the cast on would have to be 55 sts. I made this hat and just started the decreases with k6, k2tog and it worked out great, but made a small beanie style hat instead. Love the pattern, but I still think the decreases don't work out right.

hey, what does the PM mean after the CO40

It means: Place Marker -- put a stitch marker at the beginning of your row so you know where the beginning of the round is. You'll slip the marker from needle to needle as you come to it -- be prepared for it to fall off the needle if you forget about it! :)

Is this hat for real? I just finished making this hat. I used a nice, thick yarn, and a size 11 needle. I read all the posts, so instead of 40, I cast on 56 to do the ribbing, and during the knit rows, decreased 1 to make it 55 stitches.
The decreases came out correctly, but when I finished the hat, it is the size of hat for a newborn baby.
Does not fit an adult AT ALL.
