First of all Hi everyone. Nice to find a LOT of folks to talk to about knitting and problems and just…knitting
My question is about a Baby Roll Hat that I’m working on for a friend. I have a yarn that I love and it’s gauged for US 9s and 4sts per inch. The project is gauged for 5sts per inch and I’m using US 7s.
I did a swatch and got 10 stitches per inch so I multiplied the cast on by 2. Did I do it right? It looks big for a baby’s head. (not to mention that I wound up twisting the cast on stitches somewhere and have to start all over again because of a lovely twist in the work.
This is a picture of what I have/had since I have to start over again, I thought I’d at least let folks see what happens when you’re not careful in making sure that things aren’t twisted. (although the picture doesn’t seem to want to work for me now)
