Bernat Ruffled Hat Pattern Help
I'm working on this cute hat and don't end up with the same number of stitches it says I should have in the Ruffle Row. Everything worked great up till then...:??
I'm making the small size and had 89 stitches once all the increases were done before the 3" of ss.

For the Ruffle Row, I did K1, M1 (I used knit in front & back method) across and finished with K1. But, the pattern said I should have 176 stitches and I only have 133.

I think I would have 176 if I did K1, *M1 in every stitch across, K1...but, that's not how the pattern says to do that row...:???:

AND, if I do another row the same as this one, I'd have too many:wall:

On a positive note...I'm using the same yarn as pictured on the pattern and up to now it looks just like it!:cool:

You're almost close... You have to kfb in every stitch except the last one to get enough sts. A M1 puts a new stitch between the old sts, a kfb uses an old st to make a new one attached to it.

It's actually yellow, the stripe is pink with's the same yarn that the pattern shows on the link I posted, Bernat Baby Jacquards, Berries and Cream...LOVE IT! And, I've got plenty left to make another one and maybe booties to match...

That is entirely too cute! I made one of those a couple weeks ago in the spearmint candy colorway.

I love the way that yarn knits up.!

Cute dog!

Made one of those for a year old. When I finished (following all directions with same yarn) it fit an 11 year old. I ran a length of ribbon through the eyelets and tied it in a bow. Looked so cute on the baby, altho she didn"t keep it on too long. If I make another, I will put elastic through the eyelets or icord.
