I just finished and blocked the mock cable hat I was working on (you answered a question for me about the k2 twisting instruction). And I was disappointed at how flat the stiches got. This was 100% wool, and I just used steam and my iron. Does that mean I pressed too hard and should have pressed more lightly? That I should have used a pillowcase or towel to press through?
Same technique I've always used on the Christmas stockings I do and it works great there, but I didn't like it on the hat.
Will getting the hat wet and letting it airdry restore any of that texture, do you think?
