Has anybody knitted this
hat, or can maybe help me with it? I have two questions.
First of all, which side do you begin the decreases? It says to do the pattern until it reaches 6", but I wanted to make sure I was beginning the decreases on the correct side. I started the decreases on the "smooth" side--that is, the side that I was making the K1, P1's on so all of my purl rows between decreases would be on the same side as they were before, but it looks wrong...it looks like all of the shaping part of the hat if I do it that way will be reverse stockinette and not in the "bumpy" pattern. Is this right?
Secondly, is there a way to convert this pattern to either DPN's or circulars? Would I just do everything the same as it's written, except changing the purl rows into knit?
