Wonderful! Thanks for letting us know how it goes. Don't you love it when you finally get something frightening out of the way and now it's no big deal?

Oh how cute! My adult daughter and her boyfriend were Mario and Princess Peach last year for a Halloween party.

Oh, please, post a picture when the hat (or icing) is ready! We'd love to see an "out-the-door" shot, too.

Okay, I'm down to the bill on the first hat. I'm pretty scared to attempt it because all of the reviews on Ravelry say they had trouble with the pattern on that part and had to wing it. I AM NOT A WINGER!

How cute and sweet! The hat's nice, too. You've made it this far, you'll get it done and do it well!

How adodrable! If the brim gives you trouble, come back and maybe we can put our heads together and help. Love the pictures.

I think I'm getting the idea. Seems like she made a typo because it says to purl on the knit side and vice versa where the photo doesn't look like that's what she did. I just switched them around, though...easy enough. Here's where I get confused. After doing the short rows for the bill, it directs you as follows:

"Continue in the pattern established, wrapping and turning stitches earlier each row until you find yourself knitting fewer than 26 stitches in a row.

Purl to the end of the row, but before purling the final stitch, pick up the next purl bump from the hem, and purl with the final stitch. (This smoothes the transition from the brim to the hat.)

Turn work. (You are now working reverse stockinette. This will curl to the underside of the hat and look like a corded edge after you felt the hat.) Purl to end of the row, once again picking up a purl bump and knitting it with the final stitch. Knit a row, pick up a purl bump and knit it with the stitch. Bind off in purl."



So, by reading the bold part I can't understand...does it matter if I end on a knit row or purl row?

She mentions reverse stockinette which is purl the RS and knit the WS, so that might be where you're thinking she made a mistake. It wouldn't be; I think you do the purls on the outside, but when you fold the brim over and secure it, that makes a hem and will put the knits on the outside.

I think that's what this part means -
Purl to the end of the row, but before purling the final stitch, pick up the next purl bump from the hem, and purl with the final stitch. (This smoothes the transition from the brim to the hat.)

And later -
Purl to end of the row, once again picking up a purl bump and knitting it with the final stitch. Knit a row, pick up a purl bump and knit it with the stitch. Bind off in purl."

That sounds to me like you're going to do a p2tog using a stitch from the brim and where you switched to purl on the RS. That will have the effect of rolling the brim and joining the edge where it started.
