Previously I had knit the under-band and now have completed the pattern portion of the hat band. The provisional cast-on was removed and the stitches were placed on a second set of circular knitting needles; the band was folded with wrong sides facing each other and the corresponding stitches were knit together as one. This gives the hat a finished professional look on the inside. A few more rounds were worked allowing for the addition of red into the pattern. For the time being I am setting this project aside to continue work on my Mystery Socks as well as The Lady Grey Sew-Along. Will update again in a few days.
