I am up to the skulls on my skull and cross bones beanie for my son. I tried last year and from the front looked good, the back tension was too tight and didn’t fit my son at all.
Are there any tips or tricks on keeping good tension that doesn’t shrink the piece? I think I was concerned with making the knit tension too loose at each yarn change. @Raury has suggested knitting inside out, but I am still not sure how loose I need to make the ‘back’ yarn.
