Sorry, I don't understand the pattern. Is the first part "Hat" and then "Shape Top" all one pattern? Or 2 separate? I'm a real beginner! Help!

Hi Bo, "Hat" and "Shape Top" are all part of the same pattern! You start with the "Hat" section, where you knit majority of the hat, and then in the "Shape Top" section, you begin to decrease the top of the hat. We hope this helps, but please let us know if you have any other questions! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

This is very pretty and I love the look. I have made a few without any trouble. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the pattern. It couldn't be the knitter. I recommend this project to anyone including beginners. Don't allow one person to scare you away from trying it. You will love it.

This pattern did not work! When it came to shaping the hat it went downhill from there. This person or whoever doesn't know their math. Very disappointed.

The shaping consists of a 8 stitch decrease every other row, the pattern repeat is 2 stitches, so it does work out. The math does work out, I've made dozens of these hats for the local homeless shelter and have never had a problem with the shaping.

cam I knit this in the round?

You would need to modify the pattern, in order to make it in the round.
