Cute and Easy, But... Review by Angela

I loved this hat the moment I saw it as I'd been looking for something like for a couple of years. I was doing fine until the 4th decreasing round when it completely stopped making sense. I had the number of stitches on my DPNs (the pattern doesn't tell you when to change over, it figures you'll automagically know"

The problem is, you're left with a pattern that is K1 P1 and they want you to K2tog and P2tog at this point. I am now on my third cap trying to make this work, but I'm stuck if I want it to look nice and neat. I cannot find an errata. After this, none of the decreasing rounds make a bit of sense or have the correct number of stitches remaining on the needles. I'm going to work with it and see if I can get this to work so the hat looks, at the top, as it does in the pictures in the magazine.
