    Hello – Please may I have the pattern for Nell’s slouch hat – I would really love it because I have been looking for a pattern for a slouch hat for just so long and just cannot find one. The normal beanie style doesn’t look good on me but the slouch hat style does. I do hope you can help me – thank you so very much. Lynda

    Please e mail pattern. I am going to make the hat for my daughter-in-laws who will love the intricate pattern. I may even make one for myself! I just love the pattern

    There has to be an error in this pattern on Row 5. Rows 1, 3, 7, and 9 have a 10-stitch pattern that is repeated but row 5 has an 8-stitch pattern that is repeated. I’d love to know what was done for the hat pictured.

    • All of those rows have an 8-stitch pattern repeat.
      Row 1: *K 1, (yo, ssk) three times, K1 ==> K 1, yo, ssk, yo, ssk, yo, ssk, K 1 = 8 stitches
      Row 3: *K 2 (yo, ssk) two times, K 2 ==> K 2, yo, ssk, yo, ssk, K 2 = 8 stitches

    Dear Lisa,
    this pattern is beautiful and I would like to make it!
    I’m a newbie in knitting, and I don’t understand the 8-stitch pattern:
    when you ‘ssk’ you use two stitches, not one, so:
    K1, yo, ssk, yo, ssk, yo, ssk, K1 = 11 stitches, not 8!
    K2, yo, ssk, yo, ssk, K2 = 10 stitches
    K3, yo, ssk, K3 = 9 stitches

    Could you please explain this better?
    Thank you!

  • Nancy A Keller

    My problem with this pattern. No where does it ever say k2tog, so how does this decrease work??

    • Nancy A Keller

      I retract my statement. I’ve been knitting over ten years, never have I ever done a pattern like this.
      Didn’t know (SSK) is a decrease. Thought it was a slip slip knit next stitch, now I know, slip, slip and knit those stitches you just slipped!
      Love the internet, if I don’t know I look it up.
      Beautiful pattern!!
