WIP: Double hat.. UPDATE with photo
Well, you all were right to stick to the ribbing and it would all work. It looks fine! I'm wondering if I should have done a k1p1 rib instead of k2p2. Oh well, now I'm wondering at point to put the stripes. The ribbing is about 1.5 inches and I have another inch or so of stockinette now. Any ideas? I will have pics soon.

I would go ahead and start the stripes. Ive found they look better lower rather than higher. If you look at pics of my most recent FDK hat, I did them high on one side and low on the other...

Now you can see the photo. Does the 2x2 ribbing look too weird? I realize it'll be stretched over his head, but... I should have done 1x1 for a hat like this. I don't really want to frog it.... but it's kind of bugging me.

Now WHAT is with that stripe!? I pretty much understand WHY it's that way, but is there any way to do it w/o it having a little jog like that? I am waiting to do the second stripe till I find out.

Jan,

Search for "Jogless Jog" and there are directions for 'hiding' the jog.
It's still there - since knitting in the round is really knitting in a long spiral there's no way to get around it - but I did the jogless jog on my DS's FDK hat and it's almost invisible.

Happy Knitting :XX: :XX:

Mary

Hmm..I see it okay right now.

Well I tried jogging the stripe thing and it didn't work all that well. I must have done it wrong. :rollseyes: I also made the second stripe wider than I wanted. Ugh... thinking of frogging the whole thing and starting over.
