Have casted on 97 stitches 1st row reads K1,yon,*k5, slip the 2nd,3rd,4th, and 5th sts over the 1st stitch, yon: repeat from * to last st, k1
At this point we have 41 st on needle

2nd row P1, *(p1,yon,k1tbl) all into next st, p1; repeat from * to end.

According to pattern there should be 81 stitches but we have only 61.

Can anyone help.

1st row: K1,yon,*k5, slip the 2nd,3rd,4th, and 5th sts over the 1st stitch, yon: repeat from * to last st, k1

Yes, this gives 41sts as written.

2nd row: P1, *(p1,yon,k1tbl) all into next st, p1; repeat from * to end.
At the end of this row you should have 81sts. The p1, yon and k1tbl all happen in one stitch so each time you repeat this sequence you gain 2sts. You'll repeat 20 times and so thats 20x2 for an increase on 40sts or a total of 41+40. Take a look at each stitch and make sure you can see the initial p1 and then the repeat: p1, yarn over and k1tbl, p1. If you name each stitch, you may see where the error is.
Maybe this is the pattern? http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/bonnet-10

Thanks for explanation. I have tried again and it has worked out fine. Perhaps you could help with row 7 can't understand the dec.

7th row K and inc 1 (dec 1: dec 3) sts evenly across row. 81 sts

Thanks again

Good for you for finding the problem. Row 7 looks like the directions for 3 sizes perhaps? Size small, you increase one stitch across the row somewhere, say toward the middle; size medium, decrease one stitch across the row and size large, increase 3 sts distributed across the row.
Check the very beginning of the pattern instuctions and see if it comes in 3 sizes.

Well, it's going to be an adorable hat. Maybe if not this baby, another little girl sometime.
