adult hat size
I'm in the process of knitting a hat from Noro Designer Mini Knits - Design 2 and I just cast on 113 sts and have knitted 6 rows of k1p1 and I can see that it will be too big. I know the gauge is correct am using size 6 for rib then 7 for the crown. How do you figure out how many sts should I cast on since the book uses 113sts?
I also have the same problem with kids mittens - they are too small and followed their instructions. Could it be the wrong type of yarn?
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?
