yesterday I made a hat with the ribbing that folds over (I will post pictures later). So I needed two right sides facing the same way, for ribbing and the top. I cheated and changed direction making it deeper on the front. It worked but it’s not an elegant solution. (The hat turned out cute and my husband now wants one :))
As I understand, there are few ways of dealing with it, like starting with ribbing without twisting purl stitches and maybe using different cast on method. This way it would have the same ribbing on both sides. But this purling is tiring, I tried.
Also, I could just purl instead of knit the top. It’s awkward and makes my hands tense, for the same reason.
What do you do?
