Frog it

Well this is the slouchy hat I started last week.
I don’t like it.
it’s the slouchy hat with picot edge available free on ravelry.

I ran out of pink/purple yarn so I started with some grey that I had left over. The colour combination wasn’t really inspired.
I also used 4.5mm and 5.5mm needles because I didn’t have any 4mm double pointed (and I figured that the 1mm change would be significant.
I also lost track of the amount of stiches I had during the increase row, and so I muffed that slightly.
And I didn’t leave enough of a tail yarn to turn up the edge.

It was a quick project to whip up, I just think my yarn choice (Moda Vera Cardellino) and increased needle size didn’t highlight the picot edge. And with the two colours? No, it didn’t work.

So after deliberating a few days, I decided to frog the whole thing.

I’d rather have those colours to work with, than a hat which I don’t like.

I think I need to find patterns for yarns that I can buy, and that way I know whether it’s my knitting skills or my pattern interpretation skills which are the problem.
