I made my first hat [it's my second project].

I swatched and everything.

Yet its too big. OH WELL. =D Atleast I got practice with seaming [knitted on two needles].

I didn't plan on wearing it anyway, it was more for practice than anything else.

MONSTER!!!





So rock and roll.

Your hat stretches.  Next time, take away about 10 stitches from your swatched gauge. That should work.  My hats always stretch too, and I tend to make the bigger size to accomodate my locs, but no more.  Small here on out, and I'll just let it stretch.

When I made a hat that ended up being too big, I modified it!  String a ribbon around the hat, maybe about 3-5 stitches up from the bottom.  Then, put on the hat and tie the ribbon tight.  It changes the style from a beanie to a floppy hat, but it still looks cute.
