I've been creating stuff since I can remember. Knitting is my ultimate favorite.
Soft, light and tender, just like a snowflake ? this hat will keep baby?s head warm and cozy. It has no seams or strings to ensure tiny head is most comfortable.
20 sts and 29 rows = 4?/10cm in Stockinette stitch
Beautiful little hat for a baby. Loved knitting it up but was confused by the snowflake pattern - with moving marker in rows 3 and 5 so I just repeated the pattern in the graph but that did not work. Basically in rows three and five am I just shifting the whole rows starting point by one stitch at row 3 and 5?
That's right - you need to change the spot where the round begins. Here's exactly what you need to you:Row 3: remove marker, k1, place marker, *k1, yo, k5, yo, k1, double vertical decrease*, repeat from * to * as necessary.Row 5: remove marker, k1, place marker, *yo, k7, yo, double vertical decrease*, repeat from * to * as necessary.Happy knitting!

How do I know it was updated?
The updated version is now available as Craftsy pattern download and as a pdf download on our website at http://www.knitca.com/patterns/snowflake
what was updated?
I've compared the original pattern and the updated pattern and can't find any changes. It would be helpful, when patterns are updated, that the updates be put in red or some other distinctive color. That would make it much easier. Thank you for considering this option.
Thanks a lot for the suggestions, Andrea. In the updated version of the pattern, rounds 3 and 5 of the lace pattern are written out in easier to follow instructions that describe the exact place where you are supposed to move the stitch marker.
What is Knitca Delight? I am trying to find a substitute yarn but not sure if it is a 2, 3 or what? Thank you.
Knitca Delight is an extra fine superwash merino wool in DK weight (that's "3"). You can order any of the 32 colors of it at http://www.knitca.com/catalog/12
I worked this hat up 3 times today since I felt that there confusion where it says to move the marker. Also instead of using DPN's, I cast on with 16" US size 7 circular needles and switched to DPN's at the decrease. I found, as far as moving the stitch marker goes:-At the END of rows 1 & 3 (only) remove the stitch marker.-Slip 1 stitch (purl wise) -Place marker -Begin next row. That should line you up for the lace pattern. It's such a gorgeous pattern, I found it a shame to give up on and I'm so happy with the results. The premie size is perfect for my daughters' dolls. Hope this helps. :D
Thanks for sharing the tips, Samantha, I am glad you liked the design, and it works great for your daughter's dolls :-) Happy knitting!
how do i get the pattern

Kind of confused about which direction to move the stitch marker. Does it go to the left or right at the end of rows 1, 3 and 5. Love the pattern tho.
In rounds 3 and 5 when you come to the end of the round you will have only 2 sts left, and that is not enough for double vertical decrease (it requires 3 sts). So you would need to borrow 1 stitch from the next round. That's when you would need to move the marker. Hope this explanation helps :-)
Looks very sweet and soft, grabbed my attention right away. looks like it was made for an angel. making this for my grand daughter to be this month.
I am happy you like this design. Happy knitting!

so in rows 1,3 and 5, do I move the marker back one stitch or ahead? I'm thinking back,..
It was hard to figure out the pattern for the end of the rows. I just gave up and moved onto another pattern that was much easier to follow.
I moved the stitch marker ahead, but had no clue as to why I had to do it. After I finished the lace section, I could see that I didn't have the nice pattern shown. I think I should have kept going in each row past the old end of the row to where the marker was - that seems obvious now, but didn't then. This is very confusing. Anyone out there who has made this successfully and can advise?
Addendum -- I cast on for a second hat, moved the stitch marker ahead one space at the end of the designated rows, remembered to start the new row at this new spot each time -- so that the old first stitch of the row is now the last stitch of the row -- and it workedm- beautifully. One other problem, it says work in lace pattern through row 14, but only gives instructions through row 12 - I just knit row 13 and 14,

Rows 1 and 2 are the knit and pearl row you do before the 12 lace pattern rows. There you have your 14 rows.
Is there a Crochet pattern for one like this?
