This certainly is an old thread, but Lynnea, there's no reason you can't post to it and ask a question or two. I think it's fasinating that this thread has had over 138,000 'looks' at it!!
If you're still waiting for an answer on your pass slipped stitch over question, slip the first stitch knit-wise. If you're already past this point and did it the other way, don't worry too much about it - as long as you're consistent it will look fine.
Are you finished your hat yet? Would love to see it.

OK, here's another question. I have finally reached the decrease rows and have a question about skpo (slip, knit, pass slipped stitch over). Do I slip the stitch knitwise or purlwise, or does it matter?
This hat is soooooo pretty!!! I am using Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk (80% baby alpaca/20% silk) in a medium light blue color. It is so soft. Maybe I'll try to post a photo when I finish...
I love the beautiful cable pattern hat and am just finishing one for my granddaughter. Can you please give me some idea of when to start the decrease; either after a certain number of patterns or inches. It is going beautifully and I don't want to make it too short!!!! Thanks so much, Robin
