If you don't you can sew up the side and call it a cowl.

Thought of doing that, but no, I'll add a button and call it a "Neckwarmer".

Yep, that works, too.

Crap!
Flip-a-switch!

I just realized that two sts of my cable were purled by accident. Should I let it bother me and rip back or should I just keep going and then make another one with better technique?

Your choices are to leave it, fix it without ripping back if it's not too many rows, or rip back the rows.

How many rows back is it? If it's only a few you can use a crochet hook and correct the stitch. In the video section under tips there is a section called fixing mistakes. Look for the video about fixing a stitch without unraveling.

If it's only a row or two you can also tink back which is to unknit stitch by stitch till you're at the mistake and then correctly knit it.

What would I do? I'd probably fix it with a crochet hook, but I've been knitting a few years so it's not scary for me.

Repeat the purls at regular intervals so they're no longer mistakes?

If you decide to fix it, I hope it's not too hard. Some yarn is easier to fix mistakes in than others. I soooooo hate when I do something like that.

I think I'm gonna leave it. Only because it's going to be for me and when I actually sit and write the pattern, I will do a new version and work my way through the pattern as I write it.

It may be for the best. I will view the video in case I change my mind. LOL!

Good idea, Brian! If you're planning on doing that then it's a good way to handle it.

I think leaving the errant purls is fine since there's so much going on in your pattern stitches anyway. You can always go back later and cover them with a few duplicate sts if you wish.

Takes a bow.

And now back to my knitting.
