Hi Ann Well I found a yarn (not ideal but worth trying) and began the hat but I only used 64 sts instead of 80. However, when I got to the end of the first row of the pattern it didn’t work out as it should have. I counted and recounted and triple checked everything but after the last purl 7 and then knit 2 I have 3 sts. Would I knit 3 before beginning round 2 or is the pattern not divisible by 16 as I thought
