need some math help
Howdy! Wow, it's been a while since I was here, I like what you've done with the place! I love the red!!

Anyway, I won't keep you, but I need some math help because my brain is FRIED!!! I want to make this hat:

http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...-striping-hat#

but the yarn my DD picked out is 6 sts/in. This pattern gives hat circumference measurements but not head measurements. My DD's head is 20" and I'm going to do a k1p2 turned up bottom, instead of the 2" of ribbing. How many sts should I cast on??? I was looking at the 5.5 sts chart and thinking of the 17" hat??? Is this right?

Thanks.
