Left Turn at Albuquerque

What a maroon!

I finished knitting the triangles of the equilateral triangle hat. As I sat back to admire my work, I realized that something was vewy vewy swewy. The triangles look fine, but the unstitched pieces just don’t quite look like the diagram.

Now, I should confess here that I hadn’t looked at the diagram since I finished the 2nd or 3rd triangle. I just remembered the basic shape of the finished piece, pre-sew up. I went back and took a look last night. Yup. I should have taken the opposite turn back at triangle number 5. Or was that #6?

Better pull the map out and study it before I frog the dang piece.
