  1. I’m having a difficult time with this split stitch thing, I’m not able to get anywhere with it. Perhaps if it could be explained better?

  2. I have scoured the internet trying to discover what a split stitch is and how to do it but with no luck. I would really love to make this hat and consider myself to be a pretty good knitter! Please explain :)
