Blyss Hat

"This shell stitch knit hat pattern brings a great look to the classic beanie style, and this easy knit hat is a great way to give your wardrobe some knit magic. The shell stitch works perfectly with columns of knit stitches between, and it's a great way to add some texture to your wardrobe. The color possibilities of yarn also make this a great way to add in some fun to a bland outfit, particularly if you use something bright and vibrant."

I tried this pattern three times and could not get the shell effect. I started with 70 stitches but then ended up with 50 after I finished the four rows. What am I doing wrong?

Look to your yo, it can be harder to do in the round than on straight needles. On the P3tog, you are losing 2 stitches, but you are replacing them with the 2 yo's in the same sequence. The pattern sequence is repeated in full 9 times and the last pattern sequence is repeated with the exception of a k1 at the end rather than the k2 done in the rest of the sequence. The yo is essential in maintaining the stitch count in conjunction with the p3tog.

This is a very cute hat. The pattern resembles the pop corn stitch in crochet. And it appears to be just as easy. I have a bunch of people that would really appreciate receiving one of these. If I start making these now I can put them in the box in the closet for the holidays.

The designer states that she works this hat pattern with two circular needles but it could also be made using one circular needle and a double ended needle. I have never used two circular needles for one project before, it sure sounds like it would be a complicated process. Not sure I am ready for this one.

You can never have too many hats. I like the detail on this hat and I am sure you can take the same pattern and make a matching scarf. Here in NYC it is towards the end of March and still cold so I am still wearing my hats. I try to match them to the coat I am wearing. I like the color used here. I also like the fact that it is knitted in the round. Thank you.
