Reverse Side of Stranded Earflaps



I received a question from lyntwhit, who asked about pictures of the non-public side of the andean hat, and I'm happy to oblige here. I found the earflaps to be the most challenging part of the hat, since they were knit back and forth, rather than in the round. I knit these without turning my work, by knitting backwards. It was awkward at first but soon I got the hang of it. I carried each color in different hands.

Thanks for humoring me! :-) The hat's almost as pretty on the wrong side. The Yarn Harlot just posted recently about stranding as well. It's a goal I'll be working towards mastering.
