Love this pattern! A tad confused... You say work diamond pattern for 38 rounds, then it goes on to round 39. Do you work diamond pattern rounds 11-38 or 11-48?

Hope this makes sense as it's late!

I found some worsted weight wool yarn I would like to make this hat with but it's only 109 yards. I noticed for color B the yarn used was 110 yards and one skein. Was there any yarn left over from the 110 yards so I could possibly get away with 109 yds?

Round 2 in Diamond Pattern does not end with k1 - is this an error?

Hi! I'm a newbie in knitting an I'm trying to make this hat. So, I need some help. Do I have to cut the yarn
every time I move the hat from left to right needle? Because my yarn, of the color I want to use, is in the other side.

This hat should be knitted in rounds.

Thanks for your help Elaine Phillips but my problem was in gauge. I was thinking that those lines of yarn must not be there. Now that I know that there is no problem to have extra yarn behind your gauge I've started knitting this hat. And it's great! Very nice patern.

I love these patterns. However, I wish they could downloaded. Tomorrow I'm spending hours in a hospital waiting room without wifi so I can not take this hat with me to knit :-(

You could always pull it up while you are still at home and just view it at the hospital
