Challenge: bean - earthworm
Slytherin treasure hunt; 1 (buddy system), 3 (parseltounges unite), 7 (vanishing cabinets), 14 (potion perfect)
I feel in love with this hat pattern and was happy to find that the pattern was really simple (unexpectedly easy, some world say) so I had a happy couple of afternoons vanishing yarn and appearing hat
They'd no shaping or anything, it's just a worm like (or, indeed, snake like) tube of rib with a tie around the top - I added button holes to help gather the top a bit neater, and a little horse button since it was for a work colleagues baby (the show we work on is war horse).
A friend showed me a trick to keep more even tension in ribbing, you wrap that first purl stitch of every section backwards, I don't really know why but it helps keep that first bit that tends to go slack all tight
Ok, I swear those photos were the right way up a minute ago. Craftster seems to always tilt photos I upload from my phone to make them landscape; does this happen to anyone else , and does anyone know how to stop it?
