I dont understand the part including 12 sets every across last row "does it mean to add 12 morensts?

You will repeat the last two rows twice more, meaning you will work four more rows of the k2 P2 ribbing, on the fourth row you will increase 12 stitches evenly, so the increase should occur every seventh stitch twelve times. I believe this is the line you are inquiring about, hope this helps, happy knitting.

Hey, ive just knitted the hat - is there a pattern for a smaller version available?????

I used the correct needles and Bernat Satin yarn, and also checked gauge, but this hat knit up too small for an adult head. It is a pity because the pattern is great. If I knit this hat again I would use larger needles, and I would add extra rows of rib, and also at least one extra pattern repeat.

I've just finished knitting this hat, looks lovely and only took one evening. I used Patons Wool aran and used 2 colours, one for the rib, and one for the main part. I read some of the comments below about it coming up small so I used 5.5mm needles for the main part...perfect fit! Thanks for the fab pattern.

Hi, I had just a quick question, I noticed that on this pattern under sizes it says " To fit the average Lady" My question is will this hat fit the head circumference of 22 inches?

I made this hat and it came out really small. This could be my own fault. I will retry with larger needles. Also, I am confused on the two materials needed for this pattern. I assumed that it was only 1 ball of yarn. The materials make it seem like there are 2 different types needed.

The materials list has only one yarn on it and its one skein, it takes one skein of Bernat satin yarn to complete the project.

This is a really nice hat and easy to make. I converted it to be made in the round easily.

I just finished knitting this hat and it is just beautiful. The directions were so clear and were very easy to follow.

I am confused. Is this pattern for knitting in the round? And if so, how can you do WS and RS? I have seen this on several patterns and it just doesn't make sense to me.

It is not knit in the round, it is knit flat. The pattern imdicates this by instructing you to sew a seam at the end.

I am in the middle of knitting this but I think there is a mistake in the cable rows of the pattern. Has anyone else knitted this ok?

I started making it and I think there is a mistake in the number of stitches. I've started it over twice but the same problem keeps occuring. What problem in the cable rows have you had?
