Measuring st stitch
I just started my second hat project, a hemmed hat. It says to do a stockinette stitch until it is 7 1/2 inches. I was wondering do I unroll the bottom to include that in my measurement or do I keep it rolled?
Also, the pattern I am using is from Knitting Pure and Simple. Unlike my first hat, it doesn't have different measurements for different sizes. Is this common in a hemmed hat and I'm not really understanding the concept of this hat? It was recommended to me by the people at the yarn store where I live for a hat for my grandfather so I went with it, but I'm starting to get a little concerned that I'm going to finish it and it won't fit him.
Thanks so much in advance!
