An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

I like the look of this stitch, but it's difficult to knit it without pulling in a bit. As a result, the hood of my hooded scarf looked skimpy and ungenerous:
Ah well, if you experiment, you have to expect that some experiments don't work. I undid most of it and am reknitting the hood in moss stitch
I left the pick up stitches the same, but made a row of eyelets above them and then increased the number of stitches. Hopefully the hood will be snuggly and capacious! When it's done, I'm going to dye the whole garment. Let's hope that's more successful than my choice of stitches, it won't be as easy to undo.
