Large eyelets or holes? Urgent!
Hi all,
I am knitting an infant hat and want to weave some ribbon through it. I tried making a standard K2tog yo eyelet, but it is far too small of a hole to pass a 5/8" ribon through and I really want to use this specific ribbon.

Does anyone know of a way to create a larger opening so I can pass thr ribbon through easily?

There are a few things you could try.

A double yarn over creates a bigger hole/eyelet. You still k2tog after it.

You could do a one row buttonhole since they can be made any size. If the hat is knit in the round they would be horizontal though and not vertical.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Thanks! I ended up making some large eyelets that go across three rows. If it comes out nice, I'll post a pic!

The info here might help, perhaps...?

OTN: Eyelet Chemise in Handmaiden Sea Silk (colorway: Midnight). Still. And a purple Donegal Tweed set of fingerless mitts, to try out my new Hiya Hiya interchangeable needles.

Latest FO: A shrug for an Anthropologie swap in beautiful Casbah sock yarn, in Cedar, a dark green semi-solid, my own pattern. Also a quick Noro Silk Garden neckwarmer for my friend Aideen, in a vine lace pattern.
