I’m new to the list and will post an about me thread in a bit. First to my frustration:
Although I’ve been knitting for years, I’m trying double-knit for the first time with a hat for my granddaughter. She has requested one of these new “snowboarding visor caps” -something of a variation on the UK Punk caps. The visor is longer than a baseball cap duck-bill, but essentially the same.
What I am trying to do is create a double-knit pocket that the plastic visor insert will go into and, once done, put the completed double-knit visor on the circular and continue the hat in double-knit in the round.
Silly as it sounds I cannot figure out how to increase along the edge of the visor pocket and still maintain the open pocket. To keep this test hat simple I have been working it as a single color (single yarn double-knit). I am assuming that I want to increase close to the outer edges of the visor so that my increases follow the broadening bill; I just cannot figure out how. The few suggestions I have found online are maddening in their direction, are working with two colors (which is only confusing me more, lol) or are done well within the body and would not create the nice edge increase I’m looking for.
Any thoughts on this? It’s probably just me but this is really stumping me.
