Honeycomb Stitch in the round
I want to adapt this stitch to a hat in the round. How would I change it?

Knit rows 1 and 3

For rows 2 and 4, follow the directions, but purl and slip the stitch with the yarn in front.

Okay, rows 1 and 3 will still be knit, rows 2 and 4 would be done in reverse order and purled instead of knit.

Row 2: p1, * sl 1 wyif, p1 - repeat.
Row 4: p1, * p1, sl 1 wyif - repeat end with p2.

I think, you may not need the edge sts.... Another way to figure it out is cast on a small number, like 11 and work it flat for a couple inches to see how it goes, then you can figure out what you need a little easier.

Which reply should I vote for? Is one of these wrong or are both correct?

The 3rd option is out. I'm a beginner knitter.

Tried about 8 rows in the round, it doesn't look like the photo, and I frogged it. Should I leave out the end stitches?

Yes, I think all you need are the purl 1 and slip sts.

Row 2: * sl 1 wyif, p1 - repeat.
Row 4: * p1, sl 1 wyif - repeat

It's not coming out right. I'm not getting that waffle effect, just alternating lines of dashes, offset by 1.

That's the ribbed cuff below.

Don't bother; I frogged it down to the cuff.

Alternating lines of dashes (from the yarn in back and the slip st) is correct. It's what you get when you do the pattern flat, too. It doesn't look like the picture as far as I can tell but maybe that's due to the angle of the photo?
