"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle.

I agree. There should be P1 before you do the six stitches (line 8 in the directions.
Jan 22, 2018
I started the hat, goes fast, but at the decreases I am a little confused row 2 of the decreasing rows says to work 6 sets in seed stitch repeat from to last st. Am I missing something? What about the other 65 sts on the row?
Apr 28, 2018
I agree I was also confused but I figured that all the 2nd decrease row on the wrong side had a purll 1 before the seed stitch continued so I just followed this pattern P1 edge st, p1, work 6 sts in Seed Stitch repeat from to last st, p1 edge st. and it seems t be working fine.... so maybe try that???

Yes, you are missing something, when a pattern states repeat from or to that means those directions in a pattern are repeated.
Dec 17, 2018
In knitting when they state to repeat between the asterisks, you do exactly that, not every row is a decrease. It's odd that there is an error in the pattern but because knitters are not understanding or doing the pattern correctly, no one on here has mentioned the errors.

I hate foldin brims so I skipped that. Didn't like the way we decreased the work.
Jan 27, 2017
I am about 3/4 done with this hat and because of the fold over brim I am finding that it needs at least two balls of yarn depending on the size of the ball. I also started with the large size and it is way too big for ANY female so I tore it out and am making it in the small size. I am not a tight knitter. Just average.
Jan 20, 2017
This is a nice textured hat pattern and I'm happy to see that it includes directions for a larger size. Many hat patterns are too small for me, or maybe I just knit more tightly than other people. The neutral color is nice but I think the pattern would also look good in most colors.

this hat is one that looks to be fun to wear and uses three basic stitches, so would be fun to knit a change of colour would lead to a different hat ideal

I love that this hat combines three of my favorite stitches. It's such a classic and depending on the color can be worn by either a man or a woman, so it's perfect for charity knitting or a grab bag at work. This one is a keeper.

I think this is my new favorite seed stitch knitting pattern! I love the texture on this hat.

do you know how much yarn is needed? thank you.
Jul 26, 2017
If your yarn is less than 200 meters and you're going to do the folding brim it needs more than one.
