Wow, I am really new to this. I guess you'll have to explain to me what CO stands for.
Here is the pattern I like best, except that I would do it all solid without any patterns in it.
How would I make the transition between the hat stitches and knitting in the ear flaps?
I'm sorry I have so many questions. Like I said, I've never knitted and I don't know anyone I can ask (nobody I know knits!). I live in a small town that doesn't have a knitting shop I can go to. But maybe I'll learn and teach the town!
