Cute hat, but why do the stitches jump up to 80? You only cast on 48.

Thank you for the pattern, made it yesterday for my grand daughter! Do you have a cardigan sweater to match it?
 
Sorry I do not have a matching sweater.
 
Hi Susie, great little hat. Would you have this pattern for flat knitting?
 
Since I don't like sewing a seam and weaving in more ends than necessary...NOPE no patterns for knitting flat and seaming on this blog.
