I made a pretty simple hat in the round using circular needles. I did not use a pattern, but just trial and error and became better acquainted with my good friend frog.
It turned out okay.
I put in a contrasting color at a few places, trying out that two handed fair isle technique someone posted before to practice. I used no pattern for that either, just a couple rows of diamond shapes plus several single-rows of the contrasting color.
For some reason, the diamond areas lined up well, but the single row stripes all seemed a little off at the beginning and end of the row.
I attempted to line up the rows better when I wove in the ends on the inside of the hat. It seems to have made the joins more lumpy, but did not fix the alignment very much.
Will this be fixed with blocking?
I would not be surprised to learn that I made some very basic mistake when connecting the rounds or something like that, but I just can’t figure it out.
Good news – yay! first hat.
Bad news – now I’m afraid to try again if I don’t know what I did wrong the first time.
I took a couple photos – one is a close up of an area with the mistake, and the other is a washed-out photo attempting to show the whole thing.
Any ideas or advice would be appreciated.
