Love the pattern. Nice work. What weight or gauge yarn did you use?

Maybe I am not using the right yarn. I have been using an anti pill acrylic worsted

Has anyone lined the ear band of the 1898 hat? If yes, what did you use.
I am looking for something with a lot of stretch and extra warmth.

Just off the needles, not blocked yet. Edge is not rolling back. I think ribbed edge works.
Thanks everyone for your suggestions.

I used wool sock yarn. 75% wool 25% nylon
Needles. US 0 / 2.0 mm

I used the edging recommended in the pattern - garter stitch
Tried Latvian braid on the second pair and third pair
I think I will try twisted rib although that probably isn’t typical for Latvian mitts.

I saw a couple of people posting pictures of their mitts so I purchased the book and gave it a try. I always wanted to try Latvian knitting. I have made 3 pairs.
I wasn’t disappointed until I blocked them. I am not happy and I think I should try again. Do you recommend a blocking tool/hand to shape them?
I just dried them flat.
I also used sock yarn, I don’t know if a different yarn would make a difference.

The end of all 3 doesn’t lie flat, it keeps folding back.

Suggestions please. I did want to give them as gifts ... now I am second guessing that...

(The light blue 3rd pair is my pattern, not from the book)

Knit these ponchos for my granddaughters.
I needed an easy project to knit in the car for our PEI vacation. What a beautiful island.
Pattern is by Plymouth Yarn.
Wool is sweetroll, Premier Yarns.

Thanks. I did look at Ravelry but I was looking for recommendations from people who might have a favorite
