Thanks--Picture wasn't too great to show any detail. But, knit in the round. Made it up as I went, started with a seed st then switched to st st back to seed st for the yellow and the rest in st st. Took a lot of knitting in sport weight yarn!! But, he loved it and sooo warm in brown sheep wool.
There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
