p_aaaa Cheer hat number 3 is now finished and of course something went horribly wrong. I must have added in a random row somewhere, so the wrong side is now the right side. I follow the same pattern each time, yet they all turn out differently. I suppose that's the beauty of handmade.
I currently have my Cheshire Cat pinned on and I'll see how many people treat me like a crazy woman before I decide if he's a permanent fixture.
I'm feeling Cheer hat number 5 in the offing because I really want to do one perfectly one of these days. I think I'll get some cotton or bamboo yarn in a nice summer colour next.

  •   doreens_farm_life This one is more classy, because of the color, the cat gives a Touch of fun. Both look great! Cant wait to see What you make more. 21h
  •   strollamus Keep the cat - he looks great, as does the hat. Maybe a serendipitous mistake? 19h
  •   debsamillion Looks great. What has happened to hat number 4? 16h
  •   p_aaaa @debsamillion no. 4 is the orange rainbow. I started it after and finished it before no. 3. I'll soon have a cheer hat for every day of the week 11h

whimscree Let us welcome the weekend! I've just decided to start picking up my needles again and brush up on my knitting skills ^ ㅅ ^ How adorable is the colour of the yarn! I love multi-coloured yarns, they just automatically alternates and make everything looks more sophisticated. 1d

p_aaaa After my good luck with the eyelets on Cheer hat no. 4 in the rainbow yarn, I figured I might as well revisit hat number 3, which I'd left ready to start on those two pesky rows.
Anyway, I think I can safely say I now have it cracked. Hurrah!
Using the rainbow yarn last time really helped me get to grips with the mechanics of which the slip stitch was, and I now understand where I was going wrong with hats numbers 1 & 2.
While I was sitting here knitting, it dawned on me that this yarn is the perfect colour to wear my Cheshire Cat brooch on when it's finished. Now I just need to get a move on with the shaping rows and I'll have another funky hat to wear.
