I saw this knock-off pattern for that CC Beanie and thought I would be able to do it with my limited skill-set. It is a little rough I know and I did struggle with that provisional cast-on. Never did get that original yarn out of the project! Yikes! So this beanie is supposed to look like the white one below! I am hoping that if I continue making this style it will get better and better with each one and the provisional cast on will get easier. I am wanting to gift these to my girls. My concern is 1) I am fearful it will be too small when I am done. Hopefully once it’s off the needle it will loosen up and be OK. BUT if not, can I just add extra cast-on stitches to make it bigger next time? And 2) My biggest question – is it possible to do something a little more attractive with different color yarns with this! I think I could maybe just add a different color and do that color in select rows but will that look dorky? Essentially, the hat would have a ‘striped’ look from the different color rows… not good??
Please tell me what you think! And thank you.
