’Windschief’ is a German word that is equivalent to ‘skew’ in English.

Errata: Hat Crown - Divide into four sections by first locating the beginning of round marker and placing markers after stitch 21(23,25) and after stitch 43(47,51).
Next Rnd: k21(23,25), slm, k22(24,26), slm, k22(24,26), slm, (p1, k1tbl) to 1 st before end of rnd. Next is a purl stitch followed by the beginning of rnd marker. Swap the purl stitch and the marker, then slm. The beginning of the rnd was just relocated 1 stitch to the right. The first stitch of each rnd is now a purl stitch.
