I learned to knit about two months ago. I’m practicing a baby hat for my cousin’s baby girl due in June. I’m totally a newb, so don’t make fun of my poor skills. Every dang hat I make comes out like this! (this is number four, but my first baby-sized attempt). When I knit 2 together on the decrease, it’s very apparent. There are bumps, and on the models I’ve seen, there are no decrease bumps. I’ve googled it, but I’m not even sure what to call it.
Gah! And I know it’s probably not the best idea, but I generally consider patterns more of a guide. I loosely follow them, but either way, I don’t think that has any influence over the bump issue.
Any knitters out there care to bestow their wisdom upon me?
