"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"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. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

Fair Isle (Stranded) Technique:
Carry color not in use loosely across WS of work.
Note: Hat is worked in-the-round; begin with circular needle, change to double pointed needles while shaping crownwhen there are too few sts to fit on circular needle.
Beginning at lower edge, using MC, cast on 72 (80, 88) sts. Join, being careful not to twist sts; place a marker (pm) for beginning of round.
Continuing with MC, knit 5 rounds, purl 1 round (turning round), knit 4 rounds.
Change to A; knit 1 round.
Change to MC; knit 1 round.
Begin working from chart, changing colors as indicated; work Rounds 1 – 12.
Change to MC on all sts; knit 1 round.
Change to A; knit 1 round.
Change to MC; knit 2 (4, 6) rounds, pm every 18 (20, 22) sts on last round.
Beginning this round, dec 4 sts evenly every other round 13 (15, 17) times as follows: K2tog, [work to next marker, k2tog] 3 times, work to end—20 sts remain.
Knit 1 round even.
Decrease 10 sts evenly around by k2tog around—10 sts remain.
Cut yarn, leaving a 10" [25.5 cm] tail. Using yarn needle and tail, thread tail through remaining sts; pull together to close top of Hat.
Fasten off securely.
Using yarn needle, weave in all ends.
Facing: Turn lower edge to WS along turning round; stitch neatly in place, being careful not to work too tightly.
Pompom: Wind A, B and C around 4 fingers approx 30 times. Tie tightly in the middle and leave a long end for attaching to Hat. Cut loops at both ends and trim to smooth round shape.
Attach Pompom to top of Hat.

Charts intimidate me and I shy away from patterns that use them. But this is such a simple pattern, perfect for someone like me who has never worked from a chart before. And it makes a really pretty hat. I'm going to put it on my list for when I want to learn Fair Isle.
