The pearl/knit rows (black band) should be as many rows as you like. I made it 20 rows and folded to give the band a real band feel.

Very nice looking set. The beanie will be a nice gift idea.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

where it says yrn (yarn round needle) in the pattern you can read it as yon (yarn over needle), both are the same. Unfortunately there is no standard vocabulary in the knitting world.

OK, I am new to the site so would you mind telling me how to see the photo of the finished product. I see that others have commented on the look of the beanie but I don't know where to view that.
