Here is another hat from:http://club.osinka.ru/topic-72491?&start=435
. It has the instructions, again in Russian. I have been wanting to make an "ice cream cone hat" but couldn't find any info that came close to this. Any one out there that knows?
From I get you need to increase on one side while decreasing on the other to get the spiral. So knit 4 rows, purl 4 rows then increase (?many) at the start and then decrease the same at the end. There must be some math equation in here in that you do the increases and dec on such and such a row, right?
That is cute. Hope you figure out the pattern
I have a friend that emigrated from Russia to the States. I'll send her a link and see if she can translate. (I don't know if she knits, so if not it might still be Greek to her, but I'll let you know.)
josheli, I just wanted to thank you for posting the link to the Russian website. I formerly worked as a Russian linguist and now I am out of practice. That site is very good " therapy" for my rusty skills. Thank you.
I pulled the website up. They have a translate button near the top of the page. See if that helps.
Cute hat!! Thanks for posting!
hi Tammy, if you use Google chrome it will translate everything to English. As soon as you open the web page in Google chrome it will ask you for English translation. hope this helps.
I just finished a hat similar to this. It did not require the increase/ decrease. it was knit flat and the finishing made it look like this. I will take a picture and send. I got the pattern from a local knit shop after I bought the yarn, and it is so simple to knit, I will send picture shortly.
When you get the translation, please send the hat instructions my way. I LOVE this spiral hat.
really nice work- love the hat !
Here is my hat. It does not have brim that your pattern does and because like I said this is knit flat ( it is a rectangle when finished). You do a three needle bind off picking up cast on row to create spiral. I think I could add fold over brim by picking up stitches, on the bottom edge, and knitting in the round.
Sandraro, would you please share that spiral hat pattern if possible? I belong to a group who is currently knitting for a charity that gives hats/scarves/mittens to poverty-level children on the Great Plains to get them thrut he harsh winters, & this design certainly would make a few people happy.
That is darling! Hope someone can figure out the pattern!
Yes, I can do that. I need to find it, and make sure I made proper notes on the pattern because I had to call knit shop a few times to decipher the instructions. Will post as soon as I can.
I have to tell u I like your work, am hoping for the pattern
