Knitting a symbol in the round
Hi, I made my own pattern for a ΧΦ (Chi Phi) hat for my boyfriend. (That is his fraternity) The hat is black with a red stripe in the middle going all the way around and ΧΦ in blue on the stripe.
The part of the hat that I am having issues with is the letters. What I did was use 5 separate pieces of blue yarn for the letters, because I was knitting in the round and I did not want my hat to have a ton of long floats on the inside. So I have one each for
> < ( I ) Is there an easier way to do this?
Then the other issue I had was that the blue letters were not connected at all to the red background in some areas (especially the I part, and unfortunately I cant post pictures yet...) Halfway through the symbol I noticed this, and I started twisting the two yarns together before changing colors each time, which seemed to work. Did I do this right or is there a better way to do it next time?
