Pirate Baby Earflap Hats: His and Hers
NB: You might find the patterns, and the photos in the book produce slightly different projects. If you want your hats to look exactly as the photographs, then here are the changes that were made in instructions:
Worked as shown, the charts have the same skull throughout. The pictures show that one skull has a 3 stitch mouth/smile, and one skull has a one stitch mouth/blowing a kiss. If you want it exactly like the photo, then use the photo as a guide and work a one st mouth on alt skulls.
Photos show 2 rnds of CC border either side of the skulls band, but the instructions and charts only show that for the Red hat and omit it on the Teal Hat…if following the Teal Hat…then use the Red Hat chart
Photos show a two-toned striped cord on the crown…the instructions are for a randomly coloured cord with no striping. You can find instructions for a striped cord on my website. in Erssie Knit Tutorials.
Errata: The first decrease on the crown should definitely read
K19, K2tog…..as this will reduce the sts from 84 sts to 80 sts, then the rest of the crown is decreased in the normal way. However, in the book it reads
K9, K2tog....this is wrong, 11 does not fit into 84, so ignore that.
