I'm a knitting returnee, not having knitted in about 35 years, so I'm an advanced beginner. I have most of the basics down and a few advanced tips. I'm knitting what started as a simple flat ribbed hat, actually my second:
The ribbed cuff is 2" long, and the remainder of the hat is about 7 1/2" long.
But I've fallen in love with this cable:
I have 80 stitches cast on and am working up the ribs on the cuff. Can I adapt this braid for the crown of the hat? It's 13 stitches across, but I can add or subtract stitches between the cables. I'm not very good with numbers, so can anyone figure out the new pattern? or am I asking too much? Also the braided portion won't be as stretchy as the original ribs.
