  1. Hi,
    I am trying to make this hat and I seem to have a problem when beginning the decrease. At the end
    of Row 8 (the top part) I have 96 stitches. When I begin the 1st row of 20 that row only calls for using 91 stitches, so I have 5 stitches left over. Can you please help me to figure out what I am doing wrong. Thank you!

    1. Hi there !
      I will go into Ravelry & take a look at this tomorrow to try & help you figure out where the pattern is going wrong for you.I will send the reply to this post.

    2. Were you able to find out what is going on with this? Thank you!

    3. Hello Sue, no i can not see where you can be going wrong. There is a Ravelry group page kAL for this hat. The group has gone quiet but you may find something that may be of help. The group is called ''Lotus hat knit-a-long''. I would love to knit this hat again so will cast on another hat this afternoon & in doing so, may be able to figure out where your having problems. Let me know if your still struggling with it. Best regards Lorraine

  2. Is there a link to this group? I cant seem to find it. I love this it your pattern? I would like to give more of an explanation as to what I am experiencing with this.

    1. Are you a member of Ravelry ? My Ravelry name is The-Qiviut-Fairy, check out my projects page for the Lotus hat kal & it will lead you to the group. There is no way to link it in the comments section but i will try to add a link to this post. You will need to reload the page to see the link !
      This is not my pattern. I can't remember who supplied it.

  3. SO I found the original pattern and see the error in your translation of it. In line 1 of the last 20 rounds you have an extra K1 at the beginning. Removing that makes it work out fine. :)

  4. Thanks for finding that error. i will be finishing this hat over the weekend

Mioget Shawl

Been a very busy Spring & Summer around here......Lots of lambs-96 in total alive & well. They are everywhere i look. Some days i have so much work i don't know what job to tackle first.....thank goodness  i have a very understanding husband who loves the Sheep just as much as i do. Not to mention a family who are now city folk but love to come to the country side for weekends away.....& don't mind singing for their supper ! Before long most of the lambs will be gone, they are all sold & my work schedule will be greatly reduced....roll on !

Managed to finish a few of my UFO's lately & I'm very happy they are complete so i can move onto my next ''knitting with purpose'' project, more about that in the next blog later in the year. Oh and my NEW OUT♥LANDER inspired yarns (90% Shetland wool-10% Qiviut-musk oxen) big 150 gram skeins, will be off the machines in only a few days.....more about that in a week or so.
