I just finished my first hat and I am disappointed with how the top looks. It has kind of a “flower-like” bunching at the top rather than just a smooth curve over the crown. Does this mean that when I started to shape the crown that I decreased too many stitches too quickly or just the opposite?
Here is what I did: K2tog every 3 stitches, then 1 round even, then decrease every other stitch, then 1 round even. Lastly, I knit2 together all the way around and then 1 round even. I gathered up the remaining stitihes (approx 12-14)and tied it off. What went wrong? Can anyone help?
