I knit up a cute wool hat for my husband, just a simple black 1x1 rib , knit in the round, with about six rows of grey at the bottom for contrast.
I didn’t have a pattern to the gauge that I wanted, so I went from something similar and did my math… but it’s a little too long. I wish I’d knit an inch less before starting my decreases.
My question is, is it possible to take an inch of black off the bottom section, and re-knit the grey rounds (the very botton)? Could I insert my needles, cut the black yarn an inch up, join the grey yarn and knit downward, or will the stitches obviously look like they’re pointing the wrong way? What about putting both the black and grey sections on needles, cutting or frogging off an inch of black, and grafting them together?
Thanks for the advice of the more experienced!
