It’s Friday, and its COLD, so we figured there’s no better way to help you prepare for a weekend of outdoor fun than by sharing a new free hat pattern with you!
The Baker Street Hat is a simple slouchy tam that features a broken ribbing that beautifully plays up the slubby texture of Terra.
• YARN: The Fibre Company Terra (40% baby alpaca, 40% merino wool + 20% silk; 98 yds/50 gm skein): blue spruce, 2 skeins.
• GAUGE: 18.5 sts and 30 rnds = 4” (10 cm) in broken rib pattern, after blocking.
• NEEDLES: 1 – 16” (40 cm) US 7 (4.5 mm) circular, and 1 – 16” (40 cm) US 8 (5 mm) circular and set dpns, or size to obtain gauge.
• NOTIONS: Stitch marker (m), tapestry needle.
• SIZE: 18.25” (46.5 cm) brim circumference, 9.75” (24.75 cm) height.
• SKILLS: Knitting and purling in the round, decreasing.

Hi! I’ve left a comment on your Ravelry and thought I’d leave one here as well. The hat for this pattern is coming out awesome, but I was wondering if I could get some help understanding the decrease.
For round 3 of the decrease: K1, *(p1, k1) 4x, p1, s2kp; rep from * 4x more, (p1, k1) 4x, p1, sl2, rem m, k1, p2sso, rep m – 60 sts.
What does "rem m" and "rep m" mean? Am I supposed to use a marker?
Thanks in advance,
"rem m" means "remove marker", and "rep m" means "replace marker". You should have placed a marker once you begin the body of the hat – I’ll double check the pattern and make sure that is clear!
Happy Knitting! – Kate
