See that? See that set of stitches that is very much not involved in the cable? Yeah…that’s not supposed to be like that.
So we figure out the stitches involved and we rip. Two of the strands are longer because I needed to rip out more stitches there…the rest are shorter because I didn’t need to set as many free down there.
And then reknit it, this time actually crossing the cable like a smart kid.
And then it’s as good as new (er…better actually, what with not having the glaring error and all).
Much faster than ripping out the whole hat for 8 rows…and totally doable if you’re in good light and feeling up for a little sustained focus.
