Basic Top-Down Ribbed Beanie: 2x2 Issues
The Basic Top-Down Ribbed Beanie Recipe, when used with 1x1 ribbing, makes a top that lies flat. Stockinette will also lie flat. 2x2 ribbing creates a lovely 4-sided point. I need to adjust the rate of increasing, clearly. I was in a little bit of denial.
See, if you pull it down snug, it will lie flat. The hem is a bit ruffly as well in the photo, although it smooths out when it's on a real human head. I did a single crochet bind-off, which keeps it nice and stretchy. I'm thinking about redoing the top (which means picking out the cast-on) and crocheting a band and brim. I might have just barely enough yarn left - this colorway was one of the one-time only offerings that Schaefer Yarn Co. has done, so this is it. I might have something in the stash that could work, but I'm going to see if I have enough first.
