I’m knitting a cap with 5×5 ribbed design (I realized too late that 125 is not in fact easily divisible…) on straight needles
I tried to decrease the cap as best I could but when I finished and sewed the back, there was “extra knitting” that left the tip of the hat a pointy empty space. I tried to decrease those stitches (say 6 rows) but when I closed it again, the pointy tip remained. If I added a pompom to the top it would solve the problem, but my mother-in-law isn’t a pompom person.
Has anyone come across this problem before? And would you have any tips you could share with me?
I suspect it has to do with the way I decreased. I’m open to redoing the decrease, but would then really love/need some help from a pro on how to decrease a 125 stitch 5x5 ribbed pattern.
Thanks so much!!!
