I came to this part now:
When piece measures 8 cm / 3 1/8'', bind off the first 6 sts on needle, then work in the round with A.1 over all sts = 80-88 sts.
http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/us/pa...d=5806&lang=us

It says to work on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8, but i dont know how to do in round on this needle.

Can anyone explain me please??

What needles are you using? To work in the round you need a circular needle or double pointed needles.

That's too long a circular needle. For a hat you need more like a 16" or (40cm). That way the sts won't be so stretched out that you can't work them. Here's a link to other methods of small diameter circular knitting.

Now i made pause with this hat because i need to buy appropriate needle for round knitting and i start with this neck warmer.
http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/us/pa...d=5806&lang=us

Now this 1st part i und. and that is where buttons goes right?
And do i have to sew these two pieces? And how?

Worked back and forth on needle. Cast on 62 sts on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6.
K 1 row from WS, then work as follows - from RS: 6 sts in garter st, K 2, * P 2, K 2 *, repeat from *-* and finish with 6 sts in garter st. Continue like this.


Just i dont und. why bind off just 6 sts from both sides and not other 50 sts?? Is that because i will sew from it other part??

On this other part i dont und this:
Cast on 6 sts on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8, work sts from one piece back on needle, work sts from the other piece back on needle and cast on 6 sts at end of row = 112 sts.

When says: -sew on 4 buttons through both layers- means that i dont have to make button hole??

Any help is appreciated.

The first part of the pattern is for the part that sits on your chest and back. These parts don't have buttons. You don't sew these pieces together. Bind off only the 6sts on each side. In the second part you'll add on the bands for the buttons and join the two pieces as you knit the section that goes aaround your neck.

Don't bind off the 50sts on either of the two first pieces. These 50sts will form part of the neck so you want live sts on the needle.
Here you start by casting on 6 new sts then knit across one set of 50sts, work across the second set of 50sts and cast on 6 new sts. Yes, these two set of 6sts form the overlapping buttonband but there are no buttonholes. You just sew on buttons through both layers.

Would you please edit the pattern quote so we don't have copyright problems? The link to the pattern is very helpful and sufficient.

Thanks, salmonmac. I might do this pattern and it wasn't making sense to me, I just couldn't get my head around how it goes together. Now I see how it works.

I think it's the translations in the Drops patterns, GG. They're pretty good but sometimes too much information just gets so confusing.

I thought that if I got to that point in the actual knitting I could figure it out or someone could help but it really bugs me when I can't figure it out. I'm really glad you did, the OP will now be able to continue. You rock!
