When I finished my SnB "Newsboy Cap", I realized that I did the increases for the visor wrong and I wound up with eyelet-like holes where the increases are. Now according to Sally Melville, as long as the design is done in three places (because once is a mistake, twice is a problem, and three times or more is a design), so maybe I'm okay! :rofl: Seriously, it doesn't look too terrible because first of all, it was a "practice" hat to see if I could do the pattern, and secondly, the eyelets are symmetrical to each other and looks kind of deliberate; thirdly, the yarn I used is kind of "busy" and I think detracts a bit from the holes, but I know it's not right.
The increase that I used was a bar increase--you know, where you take the yarn between the two stitches and knit it? Well, not realizing until after visiting Amy's pages on increases and decreases that this will cause a small decorative hole like a yarn-over increase does :wall: , so my question is, what kind of increase is practically invisible? When patterns tell you to "make an increase", what kind of increase do you usually make?
