No offence to anyone out there, but I did not enjoy the ‘stitch n’ bitch’ book. Even though I’m 29, I thought the author was trying to hard to get on the knitting bandwagon and used way to much hipster and sexual innuedo language. Perhaps this is a sign I am getting old
Anyhoo, a few of her patterns actually seem cool for a beginner/advanced beginner like myself.
Has anyone made the “hot head” hat from page 162? The finishing part seemed a bit odd as it seems you do not completely decrease by knitting stitches together.
After casting on and doing a bunch of stuff you get to this…
…"row 5: *k2tog; rep from * to end - 14 sts.
row 6: *k2tog; rep from * to end - 7 sts.
(so it seems you have 7 stitches left???)
Then “Finishing - break off the yarn; leaving a 20” tail. Thread the yarn through a yarn needle and thread needle through live sts (what are live sts??? are they the ones left on the needle since they were not k2togged together??? ), drawing them tight and sliding them off the knitting needle. With the RS of the hat facing you, and using mattress stitch, sew back seem invisibly from top to bottom. Weave in ends.
Has anyone made this hat???
Also curious if anyone has made “zeeby’s bag” from pages 170-171?
