    Hello. Shouldn’t round 1 of the pattern have another yo? It seems that round 1 should be: yo, ssk, k5, k2tog, yo, k1.


    • I agree! There is only 9 stitches in this section, where all others make 10 stitches… please reply, I would like to do this pattern correctly.

      • Tried to make this hat, and the pattern just kept increasing the stitches. I quit. I ripped it out… ended up looking like a hot holey mess. Too bad, cute pictue.
