Notes

Mods:

  • different yarn
  • needle size 4mm
  • increased/decreased 2 rows instead of 3 (because of chunkier yarn)
  • Knitted to about 6 inches before decreases, with the result of the hat being just a little too deep/long/big. Hoping it will shape to my preference during blocking.
  • Decreases in pattern is a little off, as 68/9=7.5. Number of stitches after decreasing for the flap should be divisible by 8, 9 or 10, which is easily fixed.

Notes to self for using Drops Eskimo yarn:

  • cast on 72+12 stitches = 84
  • increase and decrease twice, rather than three times
  • knit to 5 1/2 inches before decreasing

LOVED this hat. I’m planning to eventually knit more, both for myself, and as gifts for others.
