Here's a trick to prevent the holes. When you are about to switch colors, insert your needle in the next stitch, but don't wrap it yet. Hold the old color yarn over to the left with your left hand. The strand of new color will be hanging closest to the needles. Pick up the new color and wrap the stitch. It will wrap around the old color.

When you purl back the other way, give it a little pull and it will snug up nice and tight.

Question!
Question.... The picture I made for the middle ended up at 33 st across. Could I just add 9 st to the CO to make it easier on myself, or would that mess up the hat completely? I can't really alter the design of the picture.

The way you knit, Kome, you could add whatever you want! You just might have to adjust your decreases a little bit.

Come to think of it, Rebecca just posted this earlier. Probably can help you figure things out.

i know i posted this problem elsewhere on the board..

so i finished the hat. it looks HORRENDOUS on the back but the front looks fine i guess. i used a bulky yarn instead of the worsted weight.. and i also casted on 64 instead and i'm a little bummed because it messed up the decreases.

the pictures below are the finished product.
you see where i circled? those were the problem areas. when you're stitching up the back it's supposed to be straight right? because that totally didn't happen for me.

:( somebody. help. the plan is to make another one for a friend of mine but i'm not going to give it to him unless it's flawless. what can i do to decrease the right way?

I would try to find a pattern to follow if you want it perfect. At least they've done all the math for you.

Kind of a newbie question here but could I use circs and DPNs to avoid the whole seaming issue? Sorry if this is a silly question...

Most hat patterns are written for knitting in the round....I cant imagine a reason to EVER seam a hat!

Ima...your hat looks FANTASTIC! I would bet those "spots" that you circled disappear when you put it on your head!
