Crossing stitches: one way to avoid a hole on a vertical opening in knitwear On the community knitting board Ravelry, the subject has twicelately come up of crossing stitches to avoid a hole where a vertical opening (pocket slit, buttonhole, sleeve opening, division for the heeltab of a sock) is being made. Although it is not the only method for avoiding holes in this area, crossing stitches is a decent utility method for solving the problem and deserves a post of its own. Illustration 1 shows the nature of the problem. Specifically, when two columns of stitches are to be separated, the only thing holding the fabric together under the separation is a single stand of yarn (illustrated in green). Illustration 2 shows that by crossing the stitches in the row just under the separation, there will now be five strands of yarn to take the strain (green) rather than the single strand in illustration 1. Illustration 3 shows an application of this principle at the heel tab of a sock. Illustration 5 is the same as illustration 4, but shown "in the wool."

My knitted wool top hat I was asked how I made my hat and I figured I should do a write up. It started when I found this site and a pattern for a tricorn hat: I recommend thoroughly reading that article site and getting comfortable with the process. I modified the plan itself but the overall procedure is the same for most of it. So this may not be the best way, but it's how I did it. Start: Cast on 108 placing stitch markers after 10, 10, 14, 10, 10, 10, 10, 14, 10, 10. I number my markers 1-10 so that I know when I've made a complete round. I then knit 14 rounds. I'll use (M#) to indicate where my markers are Round 15: k8, k2tog, (M1) k8, k2tog, (M2) k14, (M3) k2tog, k8, (M4) k2tog, k8, (M5) k8, k2tog, (M6) k8, k2tog, (M7) k14, (M8) k2tog, k8, (M9) k2tog, k8 (M10) Round 16: knit Hatband: Round 17: Purl Round 18: Knit Crown: Round 2: Purl Round 3-25: Knit (this is the pictured hat, I'm doing another where I'm doing about 60 rounds here to make it a taller hat) Tippytop:
