  1. Nice pattern. I knitted it instead of purling ( hate to purl) and turned it inside out for the same effect.
    Thanks for the pattern. Bert

  2. Yeah you can do knit or purl of your choice when working with circular needles or dpn. happy to know that you liked the pattern :)

  3. Lovely pattern. I love the look of navy and white. Thanks for the gift to us all!!

  4. This is really nice! With these measurements, what crown size in inches would this fit? 21, 22 maybe? I am new to knitting and I want to try this as a gift. The person's head measures at 22in diameter.

  5. Is the yarn worsted weight? And are the circular needle sized 7? I do not find any that are 4.7 mm

  6. Hi, just did not understand the part where it decreases. Do I still knit 4 row of col A or do I just do the decrease row as how it is stated. Row 1, Row 2 and so on.

    What type of yarn and needles, please.

  7. Hi, I love this pattern and would make one for my hubby. What yarn did you use and did you use size 7 needles (4.5 mm)? What is the finished measurement/circumference of the hat? Thanks!

  8. do u mean 4 rounds is 4 rows purl?

  9. Can I use 6mm needles? They are all I have!
