  1. No, Mary–

    I wrote the pattern so there are no decreases on the purl rounds, only on knit rounds.

  2. jan 7 2009 i was looking at your site and found a nice hat pattern point lobo hat but i cant seen to be able to print it out

  3. I have the same question as Mary re: point lobos hat. I was doing fine until the decrease rounds and now everything looks wrong. It seems like a purl round (round 3)is missing in each set and the ridges don’t look right. Any idea what I might be doing wrong? And how do I get the same ridge look without round 3 being purled? Thanks, Wendi

  4. Wendi and Mary, You’re right, there’s an error in the pattern. When you hit the decreases, rounds 1, 2, 3, 5, and 7 should be worked as in the original. Rounds 4, 6, and 8 should have the decreases. My apologies!

  5. Made some edits based on the changes above, also makes it easy to follow. Hopefully I didn’t mess it up, lol.
