This is hat #26! Woo….getting there (been making hats for Christmas gifts all year long, in case you forgot) :)
I decided to do this one so I could use up some wool stash I had and practice Fair Isle. I didn’t think the colors would look that good together, but that’s what I had on-hand, so that’s what I used. I actually really like the way it came out!
This was my first time doing corrugated ribbing, and on my first attempt, I brought both yarns back and forth, and ended up with double knitting! Aaaaah.
So, I frogged back and tried again, this time, not bring either yarn back and forth….bleep, wrong again.
So, I concluded, I must have to bring only the yarn I’m purling with back and forth. But before I did my third attempt, I decided to confirm via You Tube. Sure, enough….sigh, should have done that in the first place.
But I do really love the effect of the corrugated ribbing. Here’s a close-up of it, just because I like it so much :)
