I have some yarn leftovers that look excellent together and I found a pattern I really like to use them both up. Problem: I’ve never done stranded knitting before and, in doing research, there are several ways to carry the two strands of yarn and carry the floats. For this hat:
Which method would you suggest? I should say I’m a continental knitter so the two handed method looked interesting but I wasn’t sure it was the best way to go at this…
Second question: When she says
“XS (S, M, L)
Finished Unstretched Circumference at Brim: 16 (17.5, 19.25, 20.75)” / 40 (44, 48, 52) cm
intended to fit with up to 2-3” of negative ease”
Does that mean my head measurement? The hat measurement? Outside circumference or inside circumference? I want to modify the decreases as I don’t like a slouchy hat but I want to pick the correct size. I’ve looked through several project posts on Ravelry for this hat and nobody seems to say what size they knit.
