Yikes. It's not hard, but I must have tried 6 times and messed up. Note to self...do not do it with a dark yarn at night. Or ever.
I haven't decided whether I'm going to try again tomorrow with lighter yarn or stick to long tail for this hat.
Btw... I'm doing a test of sorts. How many hats can you make with 4 skeins of Plymouth Encore. I've knit one with a 1x1 stripe and 4 color helix stripe. So cool how there is NO jog!
