picking up stitches in middle of work?
Is it possible to pick up stitches and start knitting from the middle of a piece? I want to add a fin to the top of a hat knit in stockinette. I plan on knitting the hat flat, then seaming up the back. The fin will go right on top.
Will this work? Will it make the fin stand straight up? (It only needs to be about an inch, inch and a half tall).
