I am going to make a hat for my grandson for Christmas using your pattern. Can you tell me where you get the leather “Handmade” labels you used on your ? That’s a nice touch.

Hey I’m a new knitter and find purling clockwise to be much easier. Can I use your pattern with a clockwise purl or will it not work? I find my counter clockwise purls are just a but looser and don’t come out looking as nice. Thanks

hahaha, now i hope it looks easy for you. Tension depends on what kind of knitter you are. Maybe you need just more practice

I am new to knitting, on round 17 you k2tog, which means I have one less stitch then when I started. When I get back to my stitch marker I have two purl stitches together. I have 47 stitches so I will not be able to add the stitch markers evenly when I get to the shaping of the crown. What am I doing wrong? Thank you for your help, this hat is so cute I’m determined to get it.

hi. When you k2tog you will not end up with 47 sts, but with same 48 sts. If you made yarn over at the beginning, just knit yo and last stitch together. I did not get about purl stitches. There is no p2tog

Thank you, third time was the charm, I did it! I knit English style so I’m really having a hard time understanding while watching you since your style is so different then mine. Now I’ll see if I can master the shaping of the crown.

I conquered the shaping of the crown!! I followed your pattern but don’t know why sometimes you knit and sometimes you slip. I would like to cast on 56 stitches to make the hat a little bigger, but don’t know what combination of stitches I would need to do for those two rows to get to your 48 stitches. Could you advise me? Thank you!

Hi Bobby. Cast on 56 sts. After follow the pattern. When you start shaping crown count 6 sts than place marker, then count 14 sts and pm and so on. Place stitch markers only in knit sts.

Thank you Ann I really appreciate your help. I understand that with 56 stitches I would place my markers at every 14 stitches. I don’t know how to work those first two rows when shaping the crown with 56 stitches. I know I will need to k3tog on the first row but don’t now when to knit, purl or slip before or after. What would I do on row 2? I think after these two rows I would be at 48 stitches and could then follow your pattern.

I do suggest you follow the video tutorial. Place stitch markers and repeat what I am doing. When you see that I stopped 1 stitch before a stitch marker and I make k3tog, you need to repeat the same. Same with Row 2. I hope it is clear

Your directions and videos are unclear as is the sound.. the directions should clearly state what specifically to do for different sizes .. im at 56 stitches: where do you place markers—every 14 or 6 then 14 , 14 , 14 , then 6 .. where are you decreasing?? I was following your directions and had a perfect result until crown shaping.. pleased advise..thanks ever so much.. the hat is really great so far would like to continue..

Hi. When you start shaping crown count 6 sts than place marker, then count 14 sts and pm and so on. Place stitch markers only in knit sts. start decreases when you reach 23-24 cm. Make decreases as I am doing the only difference you will have more stitches between stitch markers.
