  1. Hi,
    I love this pattern and I also love Homespun yarn, so I’m looking forward to knitting this. I make chemo hats and I think this yarn and pattern will be perfect! I’m not sure what to do when the pattern says “decrease.” Does that mean to knit 2 stitches together? Thanks for sharing this pattern.

    1. Yes, whenever the pattern says decrease it means knit 2 together or purl 2 together. (depending on which side you are knitting) Let me know if you have any more questions.
