ML & decreasing for the crown of a hat?s
Okay, this is the first time I'm using the ML method to knit a hat. Usually I end up using DPNS when I get down to about 42 sts and place 14 stitches on each of 3 DPNs. With ML, I spllt the stitches evenly--45 on each side of the main loop after I casted on and just before joining.
Now, I'm about to begin decreasing, and thought I probably should have split the stitches between even numbers, like 46 on one side of the loop and 44 on the other, which I still can do prior to the first decrease round. Is my summation correct? TIA
What I've learned so far:
Knitting in the round*Garter Stitch short rows without wrapping *Eve's Rib * even ribbing * seaming ridges evenly * Annie Monesett's favorite increase**Magic Loop*5 cast-on methods* 4 decrease methods
