    I love this hat and am making my second one! I have a question as I’m a newer knitter…I keep getting a seam up the hat where I have joined it. I join by adding an extra cast on, and am wondering if I should be joining it without that? Thank you in advance for your help!

    Hi, I’ve just entered my email address to get this free pattern emailed to me and it hasn’t come through. Could you please explain why this would be.

    Looks like the website with the pattern is gone – which is sad because I started knitting it in May 2017 and now in August I cannot find it anymore.. Ah well, I’ll just try to figure out from this picture on this blog 🙂

    Any idea of the circumference the pattern would make with it’s 88 CO stitches? I’m knitting for a large male’s head, and I think I may need to size up. Thank you!

    Hi Kristen,

    If you know the circumference of the head you are knitting for and the gauge of the pattern with 88 sts is about 2 inches smaller – then you should be fine. Remember, slouchy hats need to fit a bit more tightly than a regular one, the extra weight of the slouch needs to be held up.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi, there! How many inches d0 you knit before you start the decreases (from beginning of the ribbing)? The pattern does not include the length or # of rows for the body, just knit 2 rows/purl 2 rows, then knit 9 rows and purl 2 before the decrease, but how long?

    Thank you!

    • espacetricot says:

      Hello Leah,

      We knit our sample as it says in pattern: (this is taken directly from the pattern)

      [Knit for 9 rounds. Purl for 2 rounds.] x4
      Meaning you knit 9 rounds, purl 2 rounds and do that four times.

      We do not have our sample anymore, otherwise I would have measured it for you.

      I propose to knit the four repeats and then see if you like the length, as it would be easy to add another repeat.

      Happy knitting, as ever!

      Hello Kim,

      I would suggest casting on 8 stitches less, follow the pattern and then when it comes to the decreases, just skip the first decrease round (from 88 to 80 sts) and start with the second.

      Happy knitting, as ever.
