So I wanted to do some Fair Isle that was more challenging than the simple patterns (a whole two patterns!) I'd previously done...

We Call Them Pirates looked fun... so I did it. I don't wear beanies or hats, though, so I ended up giving it to my dad. He likes it. Smiley This was super fun and the pattern was REALLY easy to follow.

The only thing, and I don't know why it happened, is that at the brim my rows don't match up. It's only there. Everything else was fine... Argh. >_<  You can see it in the photo. If anyone has any suggestions, please help so I don't do this to the next one I'm making. lol



You can also see that I didn't do the provisional cast on or the lining thing. I'm lazy. My dad likes the hat... that's all that matters, right? Smiley

the places where your rows don't line up at the bottom are called jogs.  Look up "jogless join" and you can adjust those so they look less obvious, but you might have to experiment to make it look good for your personal knitting style (I like to ktbl, so the exact directions didn't work for me).

Good job!  Smiley

Nice job!  And yes, what knittinfiasco said about the joins.  Also, if it wasn't for the constant white vertical line going up the hat then you would see the "jogs" the whole way through, not just on the brim.  You just don't notice it because you switched colours where it would have jogged on every row after the brim Cheesy  That's another way to get rid of the jog in fair isle patterns Wink

Thanks to both of you! I found some good tips to avoid that and I think I'll be much happier with the next one... and if it does that.. well, maybe the brim just won't have stripes. Wink
