Notes

I just finished up the Brightest Day hat. For the most part, I stuck to the pattern, and I am very happy with the final project. I used Cascade 220 Superwash Sport. I cast on 112 stitches to a size four, 16” circular needle and knit 1x1 rib for 15 rows, about two inches. I then switched to a size six, 16” circular needle. However, I did not increase, like in the pattern. Next, I knit six rows in the main color. When switching to the contrasting color, I knit three rounds before following the color chart. On the second round, I slipped the first stitch. Slipping the first stitch creates a jogless color change. I repeated the scallop two more times for a total of three with six rounds of the main color between each one. For the decrease, I followed the pattern but finished with 16 stitches remaining. I didn’t want the hat to look too pointy. The hat is a little on the large/slouchy side. I will probably decrease by 8 (casting on 108 stitches) if I make it again. Thank you, Rain Knitwear Designs for the great pattern!
