on to the button bands!

Hi All!

i've been a lurker for too long with a CHP on the needles! I've just finished the hood and am in the process of picking up the button band stitches... I found that I was 8 over the 150 I should have picked up but figured that I would just work em' in. I'm hoping that it's common to get some few extra stitches, especially when I am almost positive my row gauge was a skew off...

I'm using the Classic Elite Silke Tweed and so far haven't really made any modifications. I figured I need the practice with seaming. Speaking of, what have people done for the hood? Just the simple grafting from the outside or have people done anything inside out?

I'm thrilled with the way this has been coming out and I'm so eager to finish and sport this puppy out!

Wow - that yarn is very pretty and your CPH is looking really great. I made 3 of these and always picked up more stitches for the button band than the pattern called for. It worked fine and I'm sure yours does too!
