This might be a dumb question, but I'm new, so please bear with me. When you get to the decreasing part of the pattern, it says to "continue in this fashion." Does that mean on the next decrease to do k2tog *5k, k2tog* and repeat to end; purl row; then down to k2tog *k4..." or should I go back to 8k, 7k, 6k, and start over at 8k until I have 10-15 stitches left?

Thanks!

not a dumb question at all. yeah just keep decreasing like.. *k8, purl row, *k7, purl row.. and keep going down until you can *k1. and i think by then you'll have the 10-15 stitches left on the needle..

right?
i think.
yeah yeah. ok. yeah.

newbie needs advice!
Hi everyone!
I am just learning how to knit and have been lurking around the board for a couple of weeks.

This hat was my first non-scarf project, but I managed to totally butcher it when I was sewing up the top! I want to try again, so that my husband can have a non-deformed hat to wear...

I ended up with 18 stitches right after my last decrease. Then I wanted to try out the Kitchener Stitch, so I reinserted both of my needles to look like Amy's video with nine stitches on either needle. After sewing it together, I ended up with my thread on the opposite side from my back seam. Then I couldn't figure out how to do the mattress seaming 'cause I couldn't match up my stitches. Should I sew it up from the bottom?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! This is a great board, and I have learned so much by reading it and watching the wonderful videos!

I Did the Hat!
This is the first hat pattern that has turned out right for me. It was so easy. Plus, my husband LOVES VW so it was perfect.

I guess I will post my final hat here. I did it couple of months ago and although I did the VW upside down I am proud of it. It was my first non-scarf project.
I will try with smaller needles next time. DH says it is big on him.

I did the vw with intarsia. It worked but was a big PITA. Can I do it with fair isle next time??

Thanks for the pattern!!

Hi! I'm new to this forum, and I've already got a question.

I'm also a beginning knitting person.

When making this project, how do you switch colors? Do you use intarsia, or the knit-in join?

Thanks in advance

Intarsia is probably best the hat. I'm not sure what knitted join is, actually.

Marifp asked if stranding would work, and you could do it if you were careful to stretch your stitches out. That's working flat, of course.
