Aha, so my quick 'scan and think' was on target that time.........you ARE a silly goose !

By the way, The.Knitter, I just realized that I didn't answer you.........to do garter-stitch in the round, you knit one round, and then purl the next. On these socks, I caston 68 stitches, and then began with a purl round, and went another 6 rounds for 7 altogether ending with a purl round. Then on the next knit round, I increased 4 stitches on each of the two needle points, spreading the increases out evenly, giving me the final count of 76 stitches for my Jaywalker cuffs.

Sorry to bother this thread on such a silly question.

But does anyone have a nice hat pattern for my DD age 7? She asked me to make her a hat since she was the only that didnt get one for xmas. I bought two skeins of nero silk garden. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

OK, sorry! The pattern I have won't do for it then. This pattern calls for sport weight. You could go look at it anyways if you want.

www.bernat.com and search the free patterns for Hairy Hats!

It might. It's a cute hat, for a 6-8 year old girl.
