I have no objection to your posting it. The more options people have to enable them to make this interesting hat the better. Thank you for taking the time to help our fellow knitters.

I made a PDF copy if Marilyn does not care for me to post it. Not sure about MAC users though.
That is if no one else has posted a pdf copy yet.

Thank you for the thought, time and effort you have put into this chart. It makes this hat less daunting for me and I always use OpenOffice too!

marilynknits: thank you for posting the chart for the 1898 hat. I have been staring at a knitting basket filled with beautiful blue yarn for this hat for my oldest son! No excuse now to get on it. I was able to open on my macbook pro with the windows app that opened numbers for me. I hope u no what a timely post you made. Ione

Thank you Jvallas. I was able to right click on your image to "view image" Then went to print and changed to landscape and enlarged 200%. Now I can really see it. :)

Thank you so much MarilynKnits. I have made several of these hats and kept writing out the rows. I really appreciate the work you put into this chart. I was going to do the same thing but yours is much better than what I had started.Sweet of you to share. I'm thinking I will laminate and use a marker I can wipe off. Joan

I was intrigued by some of the great looking 1898 hats posted here and on Ravelry. I work better keeping track line by line on projects and created a check list sheet which may help anybody who wants to make the 1898 hat and whose mind works in a way that this document would help.

I have been checking lightly in pencil as I finish a row or two so I can erase and reuse the sheet for future hats.

I downloaded in Libre Office. Anybody who can't download, let me know and I will see if I can save in a different format.

Edit update: See my reply a few messages below this one. I saved in a couple of Microsoft versions which I hope will work for everybody who is interested.

Thanks for the enhancement idea of laminating the chart. Love you all for adding to the original concept and making this a tool for all of us.

One tip I got from one of our "dear KPers" was instead of doing slip one, knit two together" she did a knit two together on the other side of the three knit stitches and there was no "hole" from slipping the stitch over and that is what I do with all of my hats now and I am so much happier with the look of it. I hope I haven't confused anyone by mentioning this idea. You don't have to do it if you don't want to. I just love the hat and have made several of them. I even made one for a one year old by using a size 4 needle and it came out adorable. I used the same number of stitches and just changed the needle size. The chart is awesome by the way.
Happy knitting everyone!!!!!

Sandy, so you are saying to k2tog instead of ssk? Correct?

Yes, that is correct. And it will form a pattern of these stitches to match the other side. I think you will like the look very much.

Enjoy making your hats, I love making them.
