Welcome to the weekly Questions thread. This is a place for all the small questions that you feel don't deserve its own thread. What belongs here? Well, that's up to each contributor to decide. Troubleshooting, getting started, pattern questions, gift giving, circulars, casting on, where to shop, trading tips, particular techniques and shorthand, abbreviations and anything else are all welcome. Beginner questions and advanced questions are welcome too. Even the non knitter is welcome to comment!
This post, however, is not meant to replace anyone that wants to make their own post for a question. Some things are time sensitive, and waiting for this thread and individual replies could mean losing precious knitting time. ANY comment outside this thread suggesting someone post their question in the weekly question thread should be reported and will be removed. As always, remember to use reddiquette.
So, who has a question?
I don't really have a fun anecdote or neat explanation behind today's theme, I just like dinosaurs. Share some dino-inspired patterns!
Ground rule: obscure patterns are those with fewer than 30 projects on Ravelry. Other than that, GO NUTS.
You no longer need to call RavBot in order for it to reply to your comments, but if you'd like to get its attention faster, simply put /u/RavBot somewhere in your comment.
I've just bound off my In the Sun hat, and the pattern recommends that you stiffen the crown of the hat to help it keep its shape. What have you used in the past that you like? The brim is outlined with millinery wire, so I'm not worried about that portion, just keeping the crown round even when not worn... Help me, knittit! You're my only hope! https://imgur.com/K6VGsFW
For the next 30 days I have to wear a portable heart monitor 24/7. The pouch it comes with is pretty thin and I don't like the feel of the material. It's basically a necklace that can fit an approximately 2 inch by 4 inch electronic thing.
Any patterns for tiny purses/pouches/holsters that could work out?
