I wasn't going to stick my nose in, but I wonder if Yukon is one of those yarns that twist half of every stitch, which makes it look ridged. Microspun does this, see the duck booties in the finished object thread. My expensive merino sock yarn did this, too. I looked at the Plymouth sample pattern #S351 on their website, and I can see the ridges in that sweater. You will probably get those ridges just by following the pattern, Joyce.

Just my two cents...

Here is a photo of the hat...I worked on it while we were riding to a shopping mall that is about 1 1/2 hours away today with the exception of the last round, which required the dpn's so I stopped until I could get instructions from the BEST ADVISORS---YOU ALL

PREEEEEEETY yarn, Joyce!

And, Sara is right....those ridges ARE caused by that kind of yarn.

I thought it was neat with the way it curled up along the rim without me having to do any fancy stitches...now, I've got to see if I can get the top closed without a big, gaping hole

Once you decrease to the last few stitches, it pulls together like magic. No problem! No worries!
