  1. Thanks for knitting the Corkscrew Hat with me! The C8F means that the entire cable is comprised of 8 stitches. Four are held to the front then you will knit four. The abbreviations for the cable are :
    C8B – slip next 4 stitches onto cable needle and hold in back of work, knit next 4 stitches from left hand needle, then knit 4 stitches from cable needle.

    C8F – slip next 4 stitches onto cable needle and hold in front of work, knit next 4 stitches from left hand needle, then knit 4 stitches from cable needle.

  2. In row 4 of corkscrew cable pattern is says C8F which I think means hold 8 stitches in front on cable needle. But doesn’t make sense to me. Please clarify. Thanks

  3. Thanks for knitting with me! There is not a video for part 1. I only made one for part 2 since it seemed to be the trickiest area. In my video I was using a smaller piece for demonstration purposes. When your band reaches 16″ or desired length you will bind off those stitches in the rib pattern. Hope this helps!

  4. Please tell me how to find the Part 1 video of the Corkscrew hat. I bought your pattern off of the Ravelry web site. I’m basically a newer knitter and need some help understanding the beginning part of these instructions. For the band, should it really measure 16 inches from CO edge or is this a misprint? Seems really long. In your part 2 video, your band length only seems to be 6 inches or so. Also help me to understand on what part of the band should be binded off in pattern. I know how to bind off in pattern but I can’t figure out where on the band to do this. Thanks, Jayne

  5. Which video references knitting with a second yarn in the left hand (continental style)? The corkscrew video mentions a video that shows how to knit with two yarns using both hsnds.

  6. The condensed version of the Corkscrew Hat is now available as a free download on Ravelry or in the free pattern section on my website. Happy knitting!
