Mama Needs a New Hat ~ Cable Ski Cap {Free Knitting Pattern}

Inspired from many many a cable hat, I couldn’t find one I love, especially one knit in the round, so I made my own. Enjoy!

    Hi there! I just love this hat pattern and am finally just getting to start knitting it. My skills are newer and I have a question about the directions for Row 8. It says K10, make one to end. What does the “make one to end” part mean exactly?? I appreciate any tips you may be able to share!

    I went to get yarn for this and found the info confusing: sport weight is a ‘2’, DK is a ‘3’. I went with the guage which is really a worsted. hope it will fit. Not sure if anyone else found that confusing but it sounds like it is a nice pattern to knit. looking forward it a new accessory to keep me warm in minnesota! thanks for sharing.
