Finally, finally done with the horns! The polls were very clear that I must not omit them, but I was about to make an executive decision to ignore the polls if I had to knit those things one more time…Not entirely due to the very legitimate necessity of reknitting them when a plan didn’t work out the first time and I had to adjust where to put the decreases, or when to change color, or how many plain rows should go between decrease rows…yes, I had to reknit at least once for each of those miscalculations. The really sad part was when I had to redo my final reknit of horn #2 (which should have been a simple matter of copying the pattern as I’d worked it out for the other horn) because I forgot to change needle sizes when my own pattern said to and knit the majority of the horn on needles two sizes too small.
Ah, that feels better. Knitting confession is good for the soul.
So now that I am done being an idiot in attempting to follow my own pattern (ha, not likely), here is how the horns turned out!
Oh – and I believe the clover petals are now done blocking so I can join them together with an i-cord stem, attach them to the hat, and be done!
