109-26 a - DROPS hat with berry pattern in “Alpaca” and ”Kid Silk”
I am trying to figure out if I go up the chart or down? I got the rib done and up the knit one, purl one on but I am not sure if I go from the bottom or the top to do the berry stitch? Help. Tess

Do the chart from the bottom up.

MarigoldinWash, The first and fourth row start in on the second stitch. Do I slip that one or what? Believe it or not, I have already knit it and I pulled it out because the rib was to big.
I did get messed up when I started that chart. Help! Tess

I think you are misinterpreting the chart. It is worked over a four stitch repeat and you have 80 or 88 and both of those are multiples of 4 so they work just right. You just want to start at the right on each row of the chart starting at the bottom. All rows are seen and worked from the right side. You don't slip any stitches anywhere. The fact that the chart shows uneven rows with stitches sticking out is just to compensate for the increases and decreases, just ignore them and read all rows from the right to left beginning with the first stitch.

Rnd 1: * (P1, YO, P1) all into 1 stitch, P3 together tightly; rep from * around. You should end with a P3 right next to the (P1, YO, P1 ) in one stitch that you began with.
Rnd 2: Purl around.
Rnd 3: *P3 together tightly, (P1, YO, P1) all into the next stitch; rep from * around.
Rnd 4: Purl around.

Repeat these 4 rounds for the pattern.
The charts had me a bit confused too because I was looking at the M1 and the M2 one is worked in the round, and one flat and that confused me. But I believe what I gave above is correct.

Thanks!
I think I got it now. It sounds like you just ignore those uneven rows then? I can do that. How did your hat come out? It sure was comfortable but I bit big and that is why I pulled it out. Thank you so much. Tess

You don't ignore them, just don't worry about how they'll fit in. A lot of US charts have a 'no stitch' box which you do ignore and go on to the next box. They're in there to square up the chart, but there's also a lot of charts that are irregularly shaped instead, and you just work the boxes that are there.

Right, I used a poor choice of words. I meant to ignore the fact that they were sticking out irregularly, not to ignore them, in the sense of not to knit them. Knit each square given from right to left and it doesn't matter if they stick out oddly just knit them each right to left. Thanks Sue.
