Sweet looking pattern. I'm going to try and fuss around a bit with my own pattern and create a NaNoWriMo hat. And I'm also going to try this on a circular needle.

This is my first attempt at a pattern so I'm a little nervous! I checked out the link Ingrid posted about figuring out the decreases and decided to up the stitches to 100 as opposed to the 90 since my head is a little bigger (23 in).
After doing the logo design and measuring and stuff the only question I have so far is... When I do the decrease in the pattern, I end up dropping 10 st/row. After I do the k2tog k1 row, I end up with an extra 20 sts instead of the 10-15 recommended in the unaltered pattern. Will those 5 extra stitches end up being a big deal and add a dreaded little "bump" in the end result, or is knitting a fine example of mathematical relativity? :P

Also, when I get to said stitches, do I transfer 10 sts on to one needle and do the kitchener stitch from there? Or what's the trick to that?
I understand the mattress stitch well enough but the kitchener confused me. I watched the video but that looked like two separate pieces on two different needles instead of closing off one big piece.

Thanks!

Love the pattern
I used your pattern and the link for creating your own logo. My hubby is a big fan of skulls with cross bones. I am now making another matching one for my son just downsized the pattern a little. Thanks for sharing.

I am a beginning knitter. All of the knitting I know comes from just messing around the past two days and learning from the videos in this website. Before I started I was curious as to what kind of cast on should be used for this, or does that even matter?

Side note: This is going to be my first full project and the end result is to knit my lovely fiance a pair of combo glove-mittens, this cap, and a scarf. She'll absolutely love them to death.

Thanks in advance.
