The pattern starts with the words "Hat Scarf." This section tells you how many sts to cast on.

Row usually refers to an individual row, worked flat.
Round usually refers to an individual row, worked in the round.

Some people/writers interchange the two, which can be confusing, but they mean the same thing : one row = one round.

A "mutiple" is any number divisible by the number given. In this case, multiples of 5 would be 5, 10, 15, 20.

I want to start this hat but i simply dont know how to start..
I know after cating on 70 sts, i should do 10 rnds of this:

Mock Cable Rib (multiple of 5 sts):
Rnds 1-3: *P1, k1, p1, k2; rep from * around.

But i stil dont know what (multiple of 5 sts) mean..
Should i just do *P1, k1, p1, k2,P1, k1, p1, k2, P1, k1, p1, k2 ... until finish 10 rounds???

Cast on 70sts and begin with rnd 3 of Mock cable rib. Repeat the 4 rounds of Mock cable rib until you've worked 9 rounds and then on the next round, round 10, increase 4 sts. So you'll do rnds 3, 4, 1,2,3,4, 1,2,3, and then increase 4sts on round 4 of the Mock cable pattern

A multiple of 5 just means that if you want to make this hat larger or smaller, you'll need to cast on sts in groups of 5 sts, So you could cast on 75 sts or 80sts for a larger head size. Cast on 60 or 65 sts for a smaller head size.

Have you done a gauge swatch? If your gauge matches the gauge given in the pattern then you should get the same size as the pattern says it will be. For some reason I can't d/l the pattern so I can't see what the gauge is. There is a video in the Free Videos button at the top to show you what you need to know about gauge swatches. If your gauge matches the gauge given in the pattern then you should get the same size as the pattern says it will be.

The gauge for this pattern is 14st and 20 rounds = 4" or 10cm. It is a 10ply yarn. There are projects on Ravelry that other people have done (search under 'scarf hat') and everyone seems pretty happy with their hats.
You are working in the round and making a long tube that is getting narrower and narrower til you get to 10 stitches at the end where the pompom goes. Good luck!
