I'm knitting a hat in the round. I've finished the ribbing band. Now the pattern is telling me to:

Work the set-up round: [k16,p3(5,3,5)]around.

The pattern is called Antler Hat by Tin Can Knits. Here is the link. http://www.tincanknits.com/pattern-PK-antlerhat.html

Thanks if you can help. I'm still a newbie!
It means you knit16, p3 ,around for and adult. I didn't look at the pattern but, I looked at the sizes and the middle number in the paraenthesis is for an adult. If you a check your CO number that should be divisable by 19 with no remainder. If not, I could also mean to repeat the knit16. p3. # times, so 19 x 3 would equal your total of stitches or c o number. I hope this makes sense. Just do the math and see which way it works out.
I did the math and it is not the later. Repeat number that is in parenthesis however many times you need to for the size you are making. NOT ...It is repeat k 16, p3 for adult around, for large adult knit 16, p 5 around.

Thank you...now that makes sense! I'm just not experienced enough to note that yet. Next time I'll know better. Okay, back to regular scheduled knitting... :)

Those are the kind of hats I like but grandkids all want slouchy beanies--wonder how it could be made larger in circumference with the panels?

Sure - EZ. Just measure your gauge in whatever yarn you use to do your swatch, and figure out how many repeats on the K & P sts in one repeat, to get the width you want. Most of the slouchy hats I've seen measure 21 - 25" around.
