This isn’t a real post…just asking for some help.
I want to knit an earflap hat as a gift and there is one in particular that I like with a wave pattern from a certain website that gives surprises every issue (I cannot link or name it case the person is reading this now and get curious) but I’ve never done colorwork. I’m nervous to make said hat, especially since it’s brim up. I’m a top-down kinda gal.
Question 1: Could I just start the hat from the top with my fave spiral increase method, flip the chart upside down and go from there? Does that work? It theory, I don’t see why it wouldn’t so long as I get to the correct number of stitches…
Question 2: Do you know of any easy-peasy-first-time-doing-colorwork-band-like pattern that would look good on a hat?
Question 3: I still don’t think I understand how to even do colorwork, what with joining the new yarn and switching colors and stuff…I’ve done it in a striped hat, is it the same? Am I making myself crazy thinking it’s harder than it is?
Thanks in advance and feel free to comment and link to stuff. I’ll post on my projects page whatever I decide to do since the person doesn’t have access to Ravelry.
