One for free and one for sale

The pattern you must pay me for (b/c while I love knitting from charts, making them is a pain in the ass):
Is much fun with wandering cables . . .
Knit with 1 skein (135 yds) of Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed.
Gauge is 5 sts to the inch.
Has 19" circumference, measured flat, unstretched. Will comfortably accommodate heads up to 23" around, as seen on Sam my long-suffering model.
Buy it now on Ravelry.

And one you get for free . . .
Molly
The best thing IMHO about this pattern in the cable that continues through the crown decreases. Also the simple checked texture on the rest of the hat is pretty much my new favorite stitch pattern.
Molly is knit with 2 skeins of Prism Symphony (118 yds/skein).
Gauge is 5 sts to the inch in stockinette.
The hat band is 18" around, measured flat, unstretched. It will comfortably accommodate heads up to 22" around, as seen on Miss Princess Leia, who is trying really, really hard not to laugh at me as a take this picture.

  8. I'm new to doing cables and the first bit of your pattern confuses me. It says for the cable pattern "Rnds 1-7 knit, Rnd 8 C8F, C8B". That doesn't make sense to me cuz I read that as round 8 is cabled all the way around, and looking at the photo there is only one cable. Then it says that in Rnd 1 after the increase row that you P1 then start with Rnd 3 of the the cable pattern. How do you do 3-8 Rnds in Rnd 1?

    3. I'll try to explain that to you guys. After the increase row the pattern consists of the Rnd 1, 2 and 3.

      In the beginning of each row you start with p1 and the following 16 sts is where the cable goes, otherwise you just follow the instructions for Rnd 1,2 and 3. These rows are always the same, the only thing that changes is the 16 sts where the cable comes.
      The cable is always 8 rows high.

      You should start from Rnd 3, and the cable (C8F,68B) starts when you reach row 8, that means you just knit 6 rows before the cable starts. Every 8th row you make the cable with those 16 sts, otherwise you just knit.

      Don't know if that was a good explanation, but I hope you all figure it out. Good luck :)

    Thanks for the pattern,

  24. having quite a lot of bother with the Molly hat tbh, I did see others have posted their confusion and you replied but I am still slightly confused.

    where the pattern begins after the increase row and 2nd rnd, where you say

    ' p1, work 16 sts in cable pattern begining with 3rd rnd

    as the cable pattern says rnds 1-7 knit, does this mean


    p1, k16, *p1 k1* to end for 4 rows then on 8th rnd
    c8f, c8b??
    then p1, k16, p1,k1 to end for 7 rnds untill back to the c8f etc??

    or am i waaaaay off? i just cant seem to make sense of it

  25. I must reiterate this question:

    Can anyone explain why there are rows 1-7 in the cable pattern if you're supposed to start on row 3? Why have rows 1-2????

    If we are to then repeat rows 1-3, when do rows 1 & 2 get knit? I don't understand.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I am very lost! This is a very confusing pattern. After the first increased row, what next? Why start with Rnd 3? What happened to 1 & 2? Then, what is the cable pattern? What is going on here? I already started it otherwise, I would seek another pattern! Help!

  27. Great pattern (Molly hat)..thank you! I totally understand it...as most any experienced knitter would.

    For those who are struggling, I suggest you check out this pattern on Ravelry, and look at RedRaider project notes. The notes could not make the pattern any easier to understand. If you don't know what Ravelry is and don't know how to look at the project notes, then I suggest you learn more about Ravelry.

    And remember, the designer GRACIOUSLY shared this pattern at no charge.
