Hello! I'm knitting a Flax sweater - it's my very first sweater and I've been doing really well but I think I made a mistake... and I really REALLY don't want to frog a row because I'm terrified of doing that ha.
I am currently working on the Yoke part where I am increasing every other row - I'm supposed to do this for 18 rows of each (so 36 rows total) and from that point on, I will knit "as set" with no increases. Well, my problem is that I did 18 rows, but didn't realize it, and now have a 19th row on my needles. That 19th row is an increase row, so now I have 8 more stitches on there than the pattern calls for.
I feel like these are my options:
Thank you for your help! I can post pictures of the part of the pattern I am working on if any of this doesn't make sense.
This is a link of the pattern I’m trying to adjust for a child: https://www.studioknitsf.com/bubble-beanie-hat/
What should be my cast on?
I'm currently making the Temperance Hat as my first ever knit-in-the-round pattern. I am using ~24" plastic circulars to make a ~22" diameter hat, so the material is a little bit stretched but fits on the needles. However, I am supposed to decrease the hat--how does that work? If I have decreased down to ~8" diameter, how can I work in the round without leaving a giant hole?
I'm a relatively new knitter, and this is my first circular project. I'm doing the Rikke hat pattern (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/rikke-hat) and I'm getting ridiculously large holes from laddering on the k2tog decrease. Any advice on how to fix what I've done so far (about 5 decreases with a round of undecreased purl in between each round of knit decreases) and how to avoid this problem? I've seen a lot on avoiding laddering in other contexts but not during decrease.
