I’m a little embarrassed to ask this, but I can’t quite wrap my brain around it right now.
I knit myself a slouchy beret in pink Cascade 220 with no real pattern, but based off Elann’s Pinwheel Sweater design – you know, where you CO 8 stitches, KFB on the first round, and then do k2, YO; knit one round even; k3, YO, etc. The hat came out great! I showed it to my mom and she asked me to make her one in white yarn (I’m using a white cashmere blend).
So now I’m a good way into this second hat, and I decided to count the little spirals created by the yarnovers. There are 7 – but the first hat I made has 8!
I swear that I did the second hat exactly the same as the first! Well, clearly I did something different, but I can’t figure out what. Am I crazy or just temporarily stupid?
I’m guessing this second hat will be a little less slouchy than the first but hopefully won’t be too different. I don’t really want to go back and start it all over again, but I just can’t figure out what I did differently – help?
