Help with a pattern please! It has *!?!

Postby emilythestrange » Wed Sep 20, 2017 8:07 pm

Hi I'm quite new to knitting and starting with simple patterns
I'm having trouble with the following pattern
It's a hat for a man - with Wendy serenity

Cast on 38sts
Knit 3 rows
Beginning with a purl row work in St stitch (k on rs, p on ws) for 21 rows
(This is where I have got up to)
Next row: *k2tog , repeat from * across - 19sts
Cut yarn leaving a long tail
Thread yarn through remaining sts , pull tightly to gather and knot to secure.
Seam hat
Weave in ends

I don't know what to do next ? Does it mean knit 2 stitches together - all 38 until 19 remain - on the same row?) I'm confused

Hi. Yes I think what it is saying is on that row you Knit 2 together and keep knitting 2 together to the end of the row. You should then have 19 stitches left. Hope that helps. :)
:cheers: Tony

Yes, I will second that. You are decreasing to make the top of the hat. What is the next instruction after that?
