I really need to learn how to read patterns instructions. I don't really know what they mean and i want to so i can really know what to do. The instructions are pretty strange to me so can't understand them. Words like yard over etc don't know what it means. I really need help. Now i also want to know if i measure for instance the head circumference and i have 20", how do i translate this to the machine? Thanks in anticipation.

Depends on your needle gauge and yarn. Is your machine fine, standard or chunky? There are generally tension dials that go from 1 to 10 on most machines, too. A tension swatch is most useful to help you decide which yarn and which tension to use.

Hi again. Yarn over is a hand knitting instruction. On the machine, you take a stitch off its needle and put it on the adjacent needle, leave the empty needle in working position and knit 2 rows. This makes an eyelet. If the the YO is used across the row to increase the number of stitches, one way to do it is take the knitting off on waste yarn, bring out the number of needles corresponding to the extra stitches and replace the stitches leaving empty needles where the YO's should be. Then when you knit 2 rows, you will have a row of eyelets.

Its a standard i guess bro kh 588 n 851. Don't have much choices of yarn for now till i can order. Use acrylic yarn which is what is readily available here.
