Seems straightforward enough, right? You just go around and around instead of starting and stopping, and you end up with a whole hat that doesn't need to be sewn up. Right?
That's what I thought. But there must be more to it (or else I just shouldn't start projects at 10pm after my three-hour lecture class) because look at this.
Look closer, at that spot opposite from the needles.
It twists around itself. I knitted a mobius strip!
How the heck did I do that?? I have absolutely no idea, especially because I knitted what's up there in one sitting, without even putting the needles down at all.
This is the fourth time I have started this hat and screwed up somehow... maybe it's just not meant to be?
Does anyone know of a way to fix this? Or is it completely hopeless??
