Actually I am afraid it was way too small on my 21" head (hair included). I frogged it and will start over with the larger size and perhaps go up a needle size. Since I am not using the same yarn, I am sure that has something to do with it. Will keep playing with it... do you find the Blue Sky Alpaca to be itchy on your forehead? I have used the Plymouth Baby Alpaca grande and thought it was a little itchy. I have been lining my hats with a band of microfleece to elimate the itchies. Might have to schedule a trip to a different yarn store to fondle the Blue Sky Alpaca yarn.

Candice, sorry, well, mine looked small as well, but After i was done with ribbing, i simply tried it on. You can go up a size of needles, but it looks like the alpaca I have stretches a bit. So I continued. Also you may find alpaca itchy, but I like how soft it is, also people tend to be allergic to it, make sure you are not. It would be a bit challenging to sew the fleece lining, so you can cast on provisionally and after you are done with the hat, choose some lovely yarn (silk? cashmere?) to knit the inner band just in stockinette and sew it on the inside to provide you with necessary comfort.

Cyn, this is so pretty on you! I have 5 skeins of precious Karabella Empire Silk I got on sale and I was wondering if I should turn them into Coachella, just very cautious.. will I ruin the silk and the extreme humidity by wearing a garment like that, I would love to hear how it wears!

Has anyone else started this? I CO on with the 68 stitches and am afraid that it may be too small (and I have a very small head). I am only about 3 inches into the linen stitch so it is hard to tell. I have it on a 16" needle. I am using a wool/silk blend since my LYS does not carry Blue Sky Alpaca yarns. I can only hope  mine comes out as beautiful as Olga's!

candice
Candice,
I am glad you are making it and if you are afraid it may be big on you, I would suggest doing the twisted rib tighter by not just twisting the knit sts while making it, but also twisting the purl sts, that way it will eliminate extra stretch and provide you with tighter fit, I just like to wear my hats all over my head covering my ears sometimes as well. But hair gets in the way, I guess it also depends what kind of hair you got, in case you need a bit extra when you are wearing it down and it is bulky.

did anyone notice that zinzin is by our very own olgajazzy?  i love it, although i think if i make it i'll have to alter it to be closed at the back starting at that middle ribbon, so i can wear a bra.  it's sooo pretty, though!
Everyone, thank you so very much for your kind congratulations.
The post on "how to make it work" will be blogged shortly.

Oooh! I'll be keeping an eye out for that!


Everyone thank you so much for the attention and for the patience, i was busy with another submission deadline, but here is the blog post on how to make it work and if you have questions, feel free to email me!
Best, Olga
