no gauge listed on pattern
I want to knit a hat it's called Crystal Palace BeBop & Iceland Wool but I can't seem to find the gauge. I am not using their yarn because no one has it in my area. Does anyone know how I can just knit it?
It's a simple hat.
Cast on 60 sts and work in the round then start decreasing. Can I substitute knitting worsted by doubling it for bulky yarn?

Thank you
Millie

Is that the teal hat with the multi-colored novelty yarn around the edge? The gauge for that hat is 3 st/in on 10.5 needles. For the yarn itself, Iceland's gauge is 2.5-3.5 sts/inch on 10.5 to 13 needles.

You could substitute 2 strands of worsted weight held together as long as it knits up to the 3 st per inch gauge.

I knitted a babies hat from Cottage Industry, the pattern is sweetpea baby set, but I need to knit something called 'monk's cord' which attaches/sewn to the corners of the hat. My question is What is Monk's Cord/how is this knitted?
