Well...God bless you! I have made 3 hats & was not pleased with the seams. I also have a pair of 'crazy sox' unfinished due to fear of grafting.Thank you x1000.

I was on the right track by crocheting the seam together with a slip stitch, but these is so much better.

I can't believe this just got done watching a video on the kitchener stitch now I see this, looks so much easier.
Thanks

With the provisional cast on, yes. However I have done this with a standard cast on by just picking up one leg of the cast on stitch.

My husband does have a complaint about this though - the seam is so tidy he can't tell front from back! :lol:

I finally have found a method that works for me to seam the two ends of the 1898 hat band.

Thought I would share in case it helps others. I haven't tried this on other items (socks) but you can be sure I will :-)

I am on my 6th 1898 hat in 2 weeks, 1st was a chemo hat for a friend then others requested hats, each 1 I have tried a different bind off - this looks like a 3 needle bind off but using a crochet hook, will try this way in the next hour or so when I get to picking up for the crown.

Thank you

I have not managed the provisional cast on but kind of a one!!!

On the ladies hats I made I crocheted a small flower to put on the front & on the mens ones I just put a few stitches in a contrast colour inside the back.
