OK - I'm making my bf a grey woollen beanie with my Knifty Knitter. Only thing is, it looks like it'll be way too big (I'm using the green loom) with a really open weave. Does it miraculously get smaller as you go on? How do I achieve a closer weave? Use thicker yarn? I don't mind the 'airy' look but it's not really all that practical for a winter beanie for him.

Thanks - any advice is appreciated.

I use chunky yarn on the KK.  Or you can just use two or three strands of thinner yarn.  The green loom should be fine for an adult hat.  When you are first starting off, it will look big, but as it gets longer it does shrink a bit.

hmmm, that's what I was thinking I'd have to do. I'm loathe to pull off what I've already done and start again - what to do, what to do. Maybe I'll just keep going and see how it turns out, at least then I'll have some idea.
