View Full Version : Aviatrix baby hat pattern help

10-01-2012, 02:17 AM
Hello all,

I found this great looking pattern and would love to start it but am confused right off the bat which is frustrating because all the reviews I read state that this is a very simple pattern to follow. I am wondering what the amount of cast on sts was because I have looked everywhere I can think of and can't find it? Does this pattern not have a traditional cast on to get started? If not, what are the steps? The rest of the pattern I seem to be able to follow as far as I can see when it states to "K to 5 sts from the end of the row" which I'm assuming means depending on the amt of sts I have on my needle at that time knit them all but the last 5. Does that sound right? I would greatly appreciate any help I can get and can't wait to start this great looking baby hat for a friend.

Here's the pattern:

It's on the pattern. Which weight yarn are you using. The cast on is based on that. They start showing on page 4 with sport weight. Scroll down for other weights.

The other pages give important info about the pattern, how do do each section, a glossary, etc.

Yes, keep reading. The hat uses short rows (http://www.knittinghelp.com/video/play/short-rows) which you can see here. They're part of the directions to knit or purl to some number of sts from the end and then W&T (wrap and turn).
