One question, though: Did all your cast on stitches go around the 16" needle to be joined or did you use dpns? I found that the CO stitches couldn't have possibly gone around my 16". Laneybug
, I have almost a 24" circumference around my head so I had to CO 80 sts instead of the requisite 72 sts. Therefore I had no problem getting the sts to go around the needle. If you're having trouble, are there circs any smaller than 16"? Perhaps you could try dpns?
Do you have any pictures of the one that didn't turn out right?
, here it is. When I took this picture, the tip-top part wasn't finished (but you can't tell in the photo unless you look carefully at my tuft of hair sticking out in the top left corner). Right after I took this photo, I still had the hat on my head and the working yarn skein in my hand. I was turning the corner and the working strand of yarn caught on something, the needle protectors popped off and a ton of the work ripped off the needles. There was no fixing this catastrophe, so I frogged what was left on the needles. Boo-hoo!
that is gorgeous hat! I must make myself one for the winter! (or is 40 years old too old for a slouchy hat??)tajhia
, you are not
too old for a slouchy hat!!
I am almost 46 years old! I love mine! Make one, make one!!
