Maybe I'm Making This More Complicated Than It Needs To Be

There's a beautiful stitch pattern I've decided I really like for Caleb's hat, and it's written flat in the stitch dictionary.  If I knit it in the round then it's almost all purling, but it's finicky if I try to change it to almost all knitting.

I've been thinking about this until I came upon a rather simple answer.  I could just make the hat flat.  I generally try to avoid that because I prefer knitting in the round to sewing up seams but in this case it just might make sense, it would certainly simplify things.

Funny how the obvious answers are the ones that can take the longest to come to us.
