How do I make one in this pattern?
Nine Dwindling Cables

I like the band in this pattern, but not certain how to work the make one. Any ideas?

Pretty!


They say to m1 knitwise, which is a M1R. The glossary page has links to both Continental and English videos for the stitch.

But a kfb shouldn't make too much of a difference,as it looks like a smooth rounding of the band so whether the stitch leans left or right as long as you're consistent it should work out okay. Just my two bits... Inflation hit opinion prices.

Well, that makes perfect sense! Idk, somehow in my mind it does. M1 knit should go right, I think

I have to look it up every time. I can never remember which increase or decrease leans which way. Maybe I should to have the stitch names tattoed on the correct hand for leaning...

Hmmm a useful Christmas gift might be a gift certificate to the tattoo parlor for a permanent memory aid.

How goes your showings??? Any bites yet? I've been wondering....

Like the hat, love the idea of the tattoos!
It looks like you have a M1 purlwise too. I sometimes use this method and the corresponding M1 knitwise for increases.
Testing out some increases on a swatch may be a good idea to see which you prefer. The seam can go at the back of the hat but you'd, of course, like it to look its best.

The tattoo parlors are going to be busy for a while once your idea gets out in the wild! Lets stand in line together.

I had ordered a 40Ē circular size 1.5 a while back, I have no idea why. Well, the original Nine Dwindling Cables Hat uses this size needle for the band. I am confident now with the M1 knitwise and M1 purlwise increase stitches These are the increases used in the band as it tapers.

Iíll be picking up a new skill as I will need to pick up stitches along the edge of the band to set up for the crown of the hat. The edge stitches are slipped at the beginning of each row so that should make it pretty simple to pick up stitches.

Iíve never knit with such small needles before, I really like them. The yarn is a worsted weight, so the band will be a very firm fabric.

Iím excited! I imagine it will take some time to the band with such tiny needles, I'll take photos of my progress. I watching a project develop, and this will be especially true with the band, something entirely new to me.

Knitting worsted weight with sz. 1.5 needles? Wow. The band will be very, very tight methinks. I use that size or similar on socks and knitting sport weight yarn with them ain't too much fun but for ribbing I do it anyhow. Worsted? That might prove to be a vocabulary builder. You'll have to let us know how it goes.
