i am a beginner in knitting and have learnt all the concepts and am wanting to make and Apple Hat. however the instrucions are a little confusing.
5sts = 1
what does hat mean? i am using a size 7 knitting needle. i dont have the circular needles is that fine?
2.With red and circular needles cast on 72 (80, 88) sts and knit for 4 1/2" (4 3/4", 5")
i understand i need to cast on 72 stitches but what does the 80, 88 mean/? and by the rest i understand that i need to knit to 4 1/2 inches.
i would be grateful if yo could help me thanks
and loving this forum
