11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Hemlock Blanket Question on: April 13, 2008 05:48:29 AM
I know lots of people on here have made the lovely Hemlock from brooklyntweed, and I'm almost done on mine.
Here's the thing: I'm not really feeling the decorative cast off, with the loops. It's a bit too fussy, and people have commented that it takes an age to do.
So, can I skip it, and just cast off normally? Or will that result in a world of curly-edged horror?
I don't want to mess up so close to the end! Has anyone else deviated at this point?

I'm all done with the main part of the hat, have just hit difficulties with the earflaps; my needles and yarn were both finer than the ones in the pattern, and I know I tend to knit quite small, so I added 12 to the cast on, making 96 stitches.

So I figure following the instructions to count so many across from the beginning of the round won't really work!

Are the earflaps slightly to the front rather than being exactly in the middle? If I work  the set number from the middle, plus 6 to compensate for the extra 12 stitches overall, would that work?

Help much appreciated, I've really enjoying knitting this so far and don't want to mess it up now!

That's amazing, well done! Just a tip, wire floor can hurt bunny-feet, might be better on the flat if possible? How long do you have custody for, before the new owners take over?

What might be "uncool" about La Moss knitting, is that she is *several* years late on the celeb knitting trend... Roll Eyes

So, is it necessary to use a totally blockable fiber, would you say? I have loads of 70% acrylic/30% wool that I'd like to use, but don't want to end up with the first picture, and not be able to turn it into the second, if you see what I mean!
