This is a very nice pattern. Knit beanie patterns can be lots of fun, and this one looks like it won't disappoint. Printing it out now!

I'm starting the decrease rows but on the first row I end with 66 stitches instead of 74 as it says in the pattern. Is this a mistake in the pattern?

it would be nice ifyou would give the size of needle and type/ply of yarn

Hello witch26 3771577! Four double pointed needles are used and it appears as if the designer used a bulky weight yarn. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Not everyone knows what size needle to use with which size yarn and there is also no gauge. I am guessing you can use a circular needle instead of 4 dpns

Please supply a needle and yarn size. This is basically useless!

Hi witch26 3771577! We just spoke with the designer of the pattern and she used Stitch Nation Full O'Sheep yarn on US 9 needles. Gauge was 16 sts = 4 inches in stockinette. The pattern has been updated to include this information. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting
