I started this hat called “man hat” by Haven Leavitt. I found it for free download on ravelry. I wanted to make a simple hat (my first hat ever) for my boyfriend and a matching scarf. I went to my local yarn store and bought some Queensland Collection Kathmandu Chunky. I wanted to make a red and black hat, since my boyfriend went to Rutgers University and “rutger’s red” is his favorite color! I ended up with some red and gray yarn (because the black and bits of pink in it, I thought it would clash with the red). So, I started my red and gray Man Hat! Everything was going fine, it was looking really good! And then…. I was about to start decreasing for the top of the hat…. when I realized I had 4 extra stitches on my needles. I thought maybe I could make it work without ripping out, but it definitely wasn’t going to look right. S,o RIP RIP RIP. I told my boyfriend what happened and he said oh don’t worry about it, I will wear it no matter what, I’m sure it looks fine, no big deal. I told him “you have to be a knitter to understand my pain!!!!!!”
Have you had to rip anything out lately? Were there tears? Do you not know how to count like me?!
