At the beginning of row 5 the pattern says that I'm supposed to slip (purlwise) the last three stiches of each row. So if I do that, when I turn my work, the yarn is sitting three stitches in because of slipping those stitches. How do I purl or knit the beginning stitches of the subsequent rows? Do I work each stitch individually as if the yarn was right there?

I hope my question makes sense, its really late and I should be sleeping. :LOL

I don't know the pattern you are speaking of... but in the subsequent rows does it have you knitting two stitches together? It sounds like you are about to make a shaped corner- like the heel in a sock. If so- just put your faith in the pattern and do what it tells you to- within six rows- you should find out where they were taking you with those slipped stitches.

Do you have a picture of the hat in the pattern? I love pilot hats!

Love Sarah

Ah Ha! That's what I thought. Thanks
