I am almost done with my first project (the hat), and towards the very end, for the last 2 rows it says:

Next round: K1[1,0]. *K2tog. Repeat from * around.

Next round: K1[0,0]. *K2tog. Repeat from * around.

This sounds like greek to me! I have no idea what it is saying to do. :??

I'm guessing that there are multiple sizes. So, for the first part, you would knit however many stitches would correspond to the size you're knitting. After that, just knit 2 stitches together for the rest of the round.

What are you making? It helps if you can give us a link to the pattern and more info when asking questions. :thumbsup: The numbers in parenthesis are usually other sizes. So you are just going to k2tog (knit two together) around the project it seems.

It is the coronet hat pattern,
http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter03/PATTcoronet.html

I am in the "hat body" part.

So, actually the step before says K0[1,0]. *K2tog. Repeat from * around.

I am doing the first size (smallest), so I suppose when the pattern says K0[1,0], I would knit no single stitches, and just knit 2 together all the way around?

Then when it says: K1 [1,0] *K2tog. Repeat from *around.
I suppose I would knit one single stitch, then knit 2 stitches together all the way around.

Then for the last round, which says K1[0,0]. *K2tog. Repeat from * around. do the same exact thing for the last round, Knit 1 stitch, then knit 2 together all the way around.

Yaaay!! :happydance:

One other thing, when it says: K1 [1,0] *K2tog. Repeat from *around.

I would knit 1 stitch, then all the rest of them knit 2 together. I would not knit one, knit 2 together, knit one, knit two together, right?

the first one, K1 sts and then K2 tog all the rest.

Essentially you've got an odd number of stitches on the needle after a round, so you can't knit all of them two together. Or they want to off-set the stitches so that the decreases don't make a line.

Thank you! I definately could not have done it without the help of this site. This place has basically taught me to knit!

This is your 1st project???

Holy crap- I am so glad I didn't read that when I first started knitting- I would have quit. It looks great! (and nothing like my lopsided garter scarf 1st project!)

Great job!
