This is the price of watching a British soap opera (Mistresses), one of those guilty pleasures that has you counting the hours til the end of the day when you can tune in and knit. I know you know what I’m talking about.
There I was, peacefully following my chart to make this hat for my little nephew Ruben, heaving a sigh of relief as I completed the motif and began the downhill slope decreasing at the top of the hat. As I’d worked this far, I noticed that the hat seemed annoyingly flipped over the needle, something I thought (remember the show is gripping) would “iron itself out” at the end. Hmmm. No. It was a classic twist, more dramatic than any faux pas I’ve made in the past because it involved all that color work.
Here’s my second attempt. Much better.
For the hat pattern I used Karen Canapa’s Earflap Hat
The motifs I found at Tricksy Knitter
I used Koigu Kersti 2400 and 2341
Check for twisting before going too far!
