I've been crocheting this cap for almost 4 weeks and it still isn't done. OK, I've not been crocheting on it all that time. Mostly it sits on the sofa mocking me.
I adapted my teen/adult ribbed cap pattern, using a larger hook and fewer stitches for the Bernat Super Stripes boucle yarn. Not a good choice. The boucle texture obscures the rib pattern and I've not been motivated to work on it.
I frogged 3 rows to fix a mistake last night and the boucle resists the frog stitch. Once crocheted, it wants to stay that way. I'm calling this hat my nemesis because it has so strongly resisted becoming a ribbed cap.
