Help with SnB Newsboy cap
Hi all,
I'm working on the SnB Newsboy cap and am now at the point of starting the brim. Well, I've already done it and I think I did it wrong so I'm going to frog and restart that part.
The brim is knit directly onto the the main part. The pattern says to "pu" (pick up) stitches from the cast on edge. No problem. But...every other row says to pick up two additional stitches after knitting or purling that row. The problem I'm running into is this: If I pick up the stitches at the end of the row that I've just knitted, do I then knit them? If I don't knit them, the working yarn is two stitches to the right and it seems weird.
Here's a part of the pattern that calls for picking up stitches.
"Next row: P to end, pu 2 sts from hat CO edge"
Here's a pic of what it's supposed to look like.

I should have known that Amy would have a video of it.
Disregard.

SnB Nation Newsboy cap - New question
Hi again,
I corrected my last mistake and have a new question. The pattern says to:
"BO2, slipping first st before binding off rather than purling it, p to end"

I'm on a purl row so I assume I should be binding off in a purl stitch but I'm not sure what "slipping first st before binding off" means.

Slipping the st just means to move it from the left needle to the right nedle without working it (i.e. either knitting or purling it). Sounds like you slip the st as if you were going to purl it (purlwise). Then work the next st and do the bind off.
Slipping the first st will give you a neater edge.
