Help With a Baby Hat: Beginner!!
Hi all!

I am knitting my first hat. Starting simple with one that requires me to knit a seam. I was reading over the pattern and have a question or two.

Here is the pattern:
Instructions for Baby Hat
Cast on 60 sts
R1 R10: (K1, P1) across
R11: Knit
R12: Purl
Repeat rows 11 and 12 6 more times (24 rows completed)
R25: (K4, K2 tog) across
R26: Purl
R27: (K3, K2 tog) across
R28: Purl
R29: (K2, K2 tog) across
R30: Purl
R31: (K1, K2 tog) across
R32: Purl
R33: (K2 tog) across
Instructions for Finishing
Cut the yarn, leaving a long tail.
Using the yarn needle, draw the yarn through the remaining stitches on the needle.
Pull tightly and secure the yarn.
Sew the back seam of the hat.
Sew in the loose ends.

My question is, why am I casting on 60 stitches if I am only doing 33 rows??

And is there a type of way I should sew in order to sew the back seam of the hat?

Thank you so much!
