I told you I finished my hat. Toboggan. Beanie. Whatever you call it in your region. But I didn’t show you.
There are two mistakes but you’d never know unless I told. OK, so one is that it’s a tad too short. My first hat… with chunky yarn… it was bound to happen… but dually noted. The other mishap is that I “short knitted” (I think that’s the term PodMate used) and added two extra rows to about 3 inches of hat. But who cares. I don’t. It’s done and it’s cute and it matches my ribbed-for-her-pleasure scarf perfectly.
That happens when you use the same yarn and the same k2 p2 pattern. You see what I did there? I used knitting lingo. I’m casting on, my crafting friends. Ha ha! I can’t help myself!
