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

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.

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

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?

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 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 :-(

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.
