k2garter2?????
I am making a hat with circular needles (my first hat). The pattern has 2 choices, fold up or beanie. I chose beanie. The fold up says to rib k2p2 but the beanie says k2garter2. I thought garter was just knit stitches? I remember reading somewhere that on circulars it is backwards so am I supposed to knit 2 purl 2? And if I am, why can't they just use the same term throughout the pattern?!

well i am not sure i understand that direction but to do garter stitch on circs you have to do knit one row/purl one row so that you get the ridges. if you just knit around like you would normally when knitting flat, you will get stockinette.

i don't really get that instruction at all though.

figured it out, it does say in the pattern, I was just confused because of the way it was written:

Quote:
Work in a 2x2 garter rib pattern until the total length of the cap is 5 to 6 inches. The stitch pattern is as follows:
Round 1: K2 P2 around. Round 2: Knit. (purl if working flat)
I took that to mean work in 2x2 garter rib and THEN do the stitch pattern when what it really means is 2x2 garter rib IS that stitch pattern.

Thanks for the reply, though!
