Do you guys remember this hat? I set it aside for a while, and am just now getting back to it so I can write up the pattern and make a second sample. But I’ve run into a teensy problem.
I LOST MY NOTES.
I have a mostly-finished hat but no record of how I made it. So now I am sitting at my desk, attempting to reverse-engineer it by looking at the sample.
This is not super fun. But it is a huge learning experience. Since it’s hard to internalize a lesson like “don’t lose stuff,” I am instead forcing myself to improve how I “read” my knitting. Short rows, in particular, since they are nearly invisible if done well.
I’m also finding that I don’t love the way I did the decreases on the crown, so I will probably redo the original sample, once I’ve made a second. (I can experiment with the second hat before trying to fix the first one.)
