After the long, though not unpleasant, process of making the sweater, I decided I wanted to make something quick and easy, that I could do in one or two sittings. I found a cool pattern for a hat with skulls on it, but the yarn gauge was much smaller than I wanted to do, so I ended up combining/modifying two patterns to come up with this! I really like how it turned out, but I have a question regarding Fair Isle knitting in general. You can notice between the skulls and crossbones that there is a white, vertical line that peeks through. This is from crossing the yarn when there is a long span of only using one color. I checked a few sources, and I'm doing it the recommended way, but do any of you have any tricks that would keep the twist color from showing through? Or maybe it's just a necessary evil of the Fair Isle process? Thanks for any input!
P.S. After MANY tries, I COULD NOT get the photo to upload! It is posted on my blog (Alterknit Universe) if you'd like to take a peek while I work on figuring out how to post it here as well.
