Pippa's Hat, Take 2

Ah, the confusing world of the interwebs. I thought I had put the Pippa's Hat pattern up as a free download, but instead I have linked everyone to a subscriber only service. Sorry!! Here is the pattern. Free and easy!

Pippa's Hat

Yarn:

Chesapeake, Verde Collection by Classic Elite Yarns (50% Organic Cotton/ 50% Merino Wool); 50 grams/ 103 yds per skein. You can knit at least 3 hats with a skein of each.

#1: 5957 (True Blue), #2: 5981 (Tendril Green), #3: 5985 (Mandarin Orange), #4: 5904 (Scuba Blue), #5: 5925 (Tokyo Rose)

Needles: US 7s, 16” circular; US 7s dpn. Use needle size that gives you proper gauge.

Gauge: 24 stitches per 4 inches in stockinette stitch.

Size: 6-12 months

Notions: Stitch marker, darning needle.

Notes: s2togk1PSSO: Slip two stitches knitwise, knit the next stitch, pass the two slipped stitches over this knitted stitch.

When knitting colorwork, if you must carry a strand of yarn behind your work for more than 5 stitches, please secure your floats. This will be necessary when knitting the crown.

If you would like to try this in a larger size, simply add another pattern repeat!

I think I read the first part of this post. I had a great time reading and I learn new things. I am waiting for this second part. I knew it; I know that it is going to be better that the first part.

Need a correction. Round four to five on crown moves from 14 stitches down to 13 w/o another decrease and does not work out. Please help.

Ann said...

Thanks AnnaB! Round 4 of the Crown Decrease should read:

k2 in #3, k2 in #2, k5 in #3, k2 in #2, k2 in #3, k1 in #2. Repeat from * until the end of round.

I thoroughly enjoyed knitting the pattern rounds. Then the entire crown came out so strangely that I had to come back to see why. Thank goodness I found "take 2"! I will take out the crown and redo according to these instructions. The instructions on the other site (I copied and pasted them) did not have the repeats in and I am a newb knitter, so you can imagine what the crown looks like. LOL A holy mess, in more ways than one.
