I like your idea. I did a double knit "hat" to go over my cafetiere and did decreases I found them to be totally annoying and hope there's a better way. How are you dealing with increases and decreases and what info or instructions did you find. I came up with nothing and just figured out a way to make it work.
Cheating is an option. . . . Cheaters never win and winners never cheat, but smart knitters who want to retain an iota of sanity do, cheerfully. ~~Kory Stamper
