snow - tell us what you don;t understand and we'll help.  If I see k3tog, I would knit three together and not give it a second thought.   I think that was your question.........the point is that we are here to help.

You guys are swell

Okay let me know how I do here...

12/30/04 -- THIS PATTERN HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS THREAD BECAUSE IT WAS SOMEONE'S COPYRIGHTED PATTERN AND IT CANNOT BE REPRODUCED WITHOUT THEIR PERMISSION. -- LEAH (THE CRAFTSTER ADMIN)

So pretty much the wrong side thing and the gauge is confusing me! I'm kinda learning as I go here!

Hmmm, let me see if I can help.

The gauge is pretty simple. It just means that you will have 2 stitches per inch, and 4 and 1/2 rows (lengthwise) per inch of knitting. I don't generally worry about the rows, but I definitely check how many stitches I'm getting across per inch. I recommend making a swatch before you start. Cast on maybe 8 stitches and knit maybe 3 inches in stockinette. Then just measure to see how many stitches you have per inch. It should, hopefully be two. If not, adjust your needle size. Or, if you're a tight knitter, relax and have a glass of wine. (Though that might do more harm than good in the long run)

The wrong side is the side that people won't see while you're wearing it--the inside, if you will. The pattern is basically saying that you should designate your first row after your cast-on as the "wrong side." You will always purl on the wrong side EXCEPT for the third row when you will knit to make the cute little ridge on the brim of the hat (see my picture if you don't know what I mean).

The K3tog is exactly what is sounds like--just knit three stitches at once with one fell swoop.

I tied the hat off this way: break your yarn, leaving a really long tail. Thread it through the remaining stitches with a tapestry needle. You can make a small knot here to secure the stitches by picking up a knit loop on the inside of the hat with the needle, put the needle through, and then make a knot through the yarn (does that make sense at all?!) Now just start sewing down the hat with mattress stitch to close up your seam.


I hope this helps. Let us know if you have more questions!

for the gauge think algebra, across (x) is 2 stitches and up (y) is 4 1/2 rows per inch. so basically, measure 2 stitches across, and it should be an inch, and measure 4 1/2 rows up and THAT should be an inch, make sense?

GEEZE! Lately I have been posting at the exact same time as other people, so here's your double reply.......

did anyone else have the problem that the bottom ridge didn't want to stay flipped up?  it looks fine as it, kind of like a little band around the bottom, I was just wondering if I was the only one.   Smiley

That was extremely helpful Gertie, thank you. I'm gonna give this bad mamma a shot when I'm done butchering my moms scarf [anyone else find that knitting with that Homespun yarn is a pain in the ass? You knit even a tiny bit looser or tighter than the last stick and it looks like crap. Maybe it's just me.]

I'll post the hat when I do it, or pictures of me sobbing into a tangle of yarn when I screw it up!

It certainly is a senseless tragedy.  I have the same reaction when a member of The Ramones dies.
