Three For The Show

I did a little Ship Support knitting this month, in between finishing that afghan and making little things for the Tiny Prince.

The green and gold hat is the redo of the green and gold moccasins that gave me such fits.

The two solid color ones are textured (strictly for interest) and the blue one incorpoates an experiment at the decreases. (Click to make it bigger so you can see what I mean.)

I have always been bugged by ribbed and textured hat patterns that switch to plain stockinette stitch (knit all the stitches if working in the round) for the crown decreasing. It just looks Out Of Place if you know what I mean.

So I decided to try seed stitch (knit, purl around then purl the knits, knit the purls around, rinse, repeat) and at the decrease points, no matter where I was in the patterning, I knit the two stitches together. I really like the way it came out. The decrease stitches form a distinct line, the seed stitch echoes the pattern in the rest of the hat.

You're welcome!

I think I will cast on a pair of Mittnz now.
