The first part is here
Here the bank has been knit all the way to 19.5 inches and then the ends have been grafted together. I know I promised a pic of that part, but I forgot, sorry.
Here is the grafted seam. It's still visable, but not as much as it would have been if I'd used a three needle bind off I think,
Yes, that's my desk. yes I was knitting and reading guildchat while waiting for a spawn in WoW. What's your point?
Here I've picked up 60 stiches along the edge to start making the rest of the hat. I can't stand picking up stitches.
And yes those are double point needles instead of circulars. I don't like circulars at all! All that scooching of the work around the cord to the other needle. Who has time for that madness. I much prefer bamboo DPNs because they're not as slippery as the metal ones but metal is the only material I had in the correct size. It'll do.
And here is the finished product. It's looks a bit like an acron, no? Perhaps that's why our lovely model is coping a bit of an attitude.
