I am at the end stage of my first beanie.
What do you guys (and gals) do to:
1. Secure the yarn that goes through the top hole? I am supposed to use a darning needle and run it through the remaining sts and pull it in thru the hole. How do you weave it to not allow it to either pucker or come loose?
2. I added 3 stripes but at the end of the round, they did not meet up. What's up with that? I realize you are going circular but what are your tricks to get them to meet up?
3. When you add an alternate color (as in a stripe), how do you add it when knitting in the round? I did take the "losing" yarn and knitted it with the a"gaining" yarn 3 times but it looks a wee bit chunky.
