I'm finding good luck with hats. I suppose that's typical for beginners. I had a tough time with this one when I put in the stripe. I'm not happy with it, but I camouflaged it well. Does anyone have any hints as to how I can get the second color to start nice and tightly, and also the switch back to the original color? This one is for my son. I gave him my first one...the one that rolled at the bottom...and he liked my second with the ribbed flip-up part, so I thought I'd make him one to match his coat. I am going to make him a scarf to match.
Does anyone have any opinion about the size of needles I should use for the scarf? I made the hat with size 7 (4.5 mm - 81cm). How about a good pattern that an enthusiastic novice could handle?
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
