When I finished my SnB “Newsboy Cap”, I realized that I did the increases for the visor wrong and I wound up with eyelet-like holes where the increases are. Now according to Sally Melville, as long as the design is done in three places (because once is a mistake, twice is a problem, and three times or more is a design), so maybe I’m okay! Seriously, it doesn’t look too terrible because first of all, it was a “practice” hat to see if I could do the pattern, and secondly, the eyelets are symmetrical to each other and looks kind of deliberate; thirdly, the yarn I used is kind of “busy” and I think detracts a bit from the holes, but I know it’s not right.
The increase that I used was a bar increase–you know, where you take the yarn between the two stitches and knit it? Well, not realizing until after visiting Amy’s pages on increases and decreases that this will cause a small decorative hole like a yarn-over increase does :wall: , so my question is, what kind of increase is practically invisible? When patterns tell you to “make an increase”, what kind of increase do you usually make?
