Now, theoretically this looks simple. It’s small, one colour, and unlike knitting requires only one needle at a time. But it is still possible to go very wrong.
Mistake number 1: It’s so simple I don’t need a pattern. Un-do. Find pattern.
Mistake number 2: Overestimated size of my head. Re-do.
Mistake number 4: Sewed the wrong side of the band to itself. Un-pick, re-do.
Overall, I’m quite pleased with the final result. Just need to work out how to stop my hair from sticking up above it. Really, this was the least offending picture.
