so, for the first row, we will switch to ourdouble pointed needles. and remember on this row, we are still knitting in multiples ofeight. the first two stitches are knit two together. and stitches three through eightare simply knitting, and we repeat that pattern all the way around our row. we're going todivide our stitches on each of our three needles in the round. since i cast on 6 multiplesof 8, i'm going to have 2 multiples on each needle. once iâ€™m finished with this firstdecrease row, that means i have multiples of seven, so i have 14 stitches on each ofmy three needles. with our second row, we are knitting in multiplesof seven, and again we knit two together, then stitches three through seven are knitted,repeating the pattern until the end our row.
we continue decreasing our rows in all theway down until we have knit the last two together. because i cast on 48 stitches, which is 6multiples of 8, i have six stitches remaining. i love the dimensional look of the strawberryhat topper. there are these great ridges and depth. looks like it was way more complicatedto knit than it is! always a plus. now we are ready to begin finishing up withour cute little stem, put on a leaf embellishment, and weaving in our yarn ends, and we are goingto learn how to do all of that in part five of my series. i hope you are inspired to knit up these adorablestrawberry baby hats. to learn how to knit these from start to finish, including a writtenpattern and tutorials on all the knitting
