Yes, that's right. Don't pay any attention to the "no stitch" spaces. They are just there to make the chart line up properly.

The 10 increase for every 14 sts part means that for every 10 stitches on the row before, you will now have 14 stitches. These are your repeat sections. If you had put a marker after every 10 stitches on the previous row, then at the end of this row, you should have 14 stitches between each marker. It's a good idea to do this, because on every row you should have the same number of stitches (although that number will vary) between each pair of stitch markers. It makes it very easy to locate a mistake. Whichever pair has a different number of stitches between them is where the mistake is. It also makes it easy to check each repeat section as you go to make sure you don't end up finding mistakes later. I use teesy tiny rubberbands (for hair braids) as markers.

Ahhhh....... Thanks, that was helpful. I have a feeling I'm going to have to really focus on this chart. I didn't realize how many stitches I was going to have to keep track of. My guess is I will probably pull it out at least three times!  Cheesy

Can anyone help me clarify the set up row instructions. At the first repeat section it says to knit the 1 into 5 increase then purl nine sts. Why does it say after you finish all the repeats that you just knit 10 increase for every 14 sts? And why is there four (no stitch) spaces on either side of the increase?

I'm just knitting the increase then purling the nine stitches, is this right?

*blush, blush*

Thanks everyone! I can't believe the response I've gotten from this hat, here and out in the real world. The funny thing is, it only took me a day to knit. I guess I found the perfect knitting Christmas gifts!

thanks again!

I've frogged the cable section about six times now. There's so many stitches to keep track of that it's easier than usual to make mistakes than I'm used to. I am pretty frustrated. I wish I could take a week off from work or something so I can at least work with daylight on this dark yarn and finish this goddamn project so I can move onto other knits.

that's good to know. I'm getting close to the cable. I'll make sure to tie my kids up (so they don't distract me)  Wink and have lots of light around me!

Wow! That's too cool! My 13 yr old son saw this as I was looking and begged me to make him one.  I'm pleading for a chart, pretty please with sug"aaarrr" on top me matey?

Thanks! Yeah my son decide he needs one too. In fact he tried to confiscate this one! I just used the pattern from Magknits: http://www.magknits.com/Nov06/patterns/fakeisle.htm

and put in this chart: http://www.supermitten.com/images/SkullCharts.gif

instead of the other one.

Good luck!

I had so much fun knitting the first version of this hat, that I had to tackle another one. This time I added a skull chart to mix it up a bit.

the pattern is Fake Isle from Magknits and the chart is a chart I found on the internet.
I used noro silk garden in reds and frog tree merino in white.

as always there is a little blurb about it on my blog:

That's a beautiful hat.  It looks like the little boy who's wearing it is sad in the first pic and then finally decided to break down in cry in the second shot.  He was probably sad to have his picture taken.  Cute tantrums.

Actually he's hiding his face because he didn't want to show me he was smiling. Plus I asked him to look down so I could see the top of the hat. If you go to my blog you can see him looking like a smile is on it's way out. I had to tell him not to show me his eyes so he would! Reverse psychology works every time! Cheesy
