wowie. I should have read this string of comments before I started.
I was using size 8 needles and when I was finished it was too big for even the largest of heads. I am now unravelling and re-knitting on size 6. I hope it works this time around. Although it is easy, this hat is pretty time consuming. Next time I shouldn't be so lazy and take the time to do a gauge swatch test square thingy.
I'll post a pic when I'm done
Here we go again
