I’ve fallen in love with this pattern from Marnie McLean and want to use the nautilus shape on a hat I’m working on. Problem is, I’ve started the hat already, and I had my heart set on putting an argyle band on it, just above the ribbing.
The question, then: Is there any simple way I can read the pattern so I can work the hat backwards (i.e. bottom to top), or do I have to rip out what I have and work on it the way it’s written (i.e. top to bottom) and then throw in the argyle band when I think it’s at the point it should be?
