I JUST HAD A STROKE IN MY RIGHT HAND. FIGURING OUT HOW TO DO THIS. ANY SUGGESTIONS AS TO WHICH BLOCKS MIGHT BE THE EASIEST TO DO. MY HUSBAND HAS VOLUNTEERED TO HELP WITH THE CUTTING AND USING THE ROTARY CUTTER. HOPING TO FINISH SOON. I LOVE WHAT I HAVE DONE SO FAR

Cute! I like the simple pom pom method.

It would be nice to have:
– yarn type- it seems to be worsted
-gauge
-size/approx age

If you download the pattern it tells you the yarn is worsted.

Love the hat But what ply wool. I don’t know what worsted wool is. Please what does ” ssk” stand for. Many thanks Maddy’

Madeline,

SSK is slip slip knit. When you come to this in a pattern, slip the first stitch on the left needle to the right needle as if to knit, slip the next stitch on the left needle to the right needle as if to knit, and then, sliding the tip of your left needle through the back of the two slipped stitches on the right needle, knit them together. This creates a left leaning decrease.

Americans and Canadians say “worsted”, in some parts of the world they call it 8-ply I believe. 10-ply aka “aran weight” would work for this pattern too.

First time working a baby hat. Question about step 7. It says repeat 4 times. What are you repeating? Are you meaning repeat step 6, 4 more times?
