  2. Hello, can I please ask you if the pattern has been tested.
    Everything works out till I get to the decrease part, then stitches don't correspond anymore and so the pattern doesn't work out till the end.
    Thank you very much for your help.

    1. Hi, I'm so sorry about this. The first row of the decreases should read:
      "Row 1:*p2tog k2 p2 k1* to end"

      I'm just going to change it now...

    3. Hi, really sorry but I don't actually publish a matching jacket pattern. I'm not 100% sure, but I assumed that the original poster had knitted this hat up and it matched the boy she knitted it for's jacket.
