- short rows
- provisional cast on
- creating faux piping by knitting into the “great grandmother” stitch below
I can’t wait to finish it tonight! Pa will love it. I mean, what do you knit for the man who has everything and doesn’t wear mittens, scarves, or beanies? A morgan!
*In the picture, you can see the red waste yarn. When I first started to knit this hat (knitting from the center and increasing out with two dpns) I noticed a little “nipple” like protrusion at the very apex of the crown. It wasn’t going to fly, so that’s where the provisional cast on came in. I can now remove the waste yarn and thread the yarn through to tighten the top. Viola!
