  1. I have a question re. this hat pattern. In the instructions it says: “Rows 8, 9, 10, 11: Repeat rows 4-7 (60 stitches)”, but… if we are to repeat row 4 and then row 5, how is it that we’ll be left with 60 sts if both of these rows are increase rows? Are we supposed to keep increasing in row 8 and 9 and be left with more than 60 sts in effect, or are we not increasing any more, but just doing back post dc all around? Then, the instructions say: “Rows 12, 13: Change to I hook, repeat rows 4-5 (60 stitches)”. So, we are supposed to repeat rows 4 and 5 again. Again, how are we going to end up with 60 sts in those rows, too?
