i really want to make the mapleseed one! did you cast on more stitches because you thought the med adult one would be too small? i am trying to use up some of my stash, and i have a 50 g ball of Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran, i guess i could always make a child size. anyway, how much yarn did you use? just wondering! beautiful hats by the way!

I cast on more stitches because I've made a lot of hats and know that with Classic Merino yarn & size 7 needles, 96 sts is the right size for me.  I think Classic Merino leans a bit toward the 'light worsted' side, which is why used smaller needles.

The Maple Seed pattern calls for Aran weight yarn and size 8 needles, so if you stick with that you should be ok casting on the number of stitches the pattern calls for.

I used about half a skein of yarn for each hat.  PCM comes in 223 yard skeins.

I used size nine needles and a medium worsted weight yarn- and it came out really, really small.

Your's look awesome, though! Great job!

I used the wool that you reccomended and 5.5mm needles, and they are coming out great! I think that I have meade about 6 or so......I don't have a picture, they all have gone to their homes. I had no issues with sizing, but found that I prefer the largesr size wher the CO #is 84. I made the Maple seed!
Thanks for the link to this great pattern!

bridgetbegins - I'm sorry to hear yours came out too small.  Did you cast on extra stitches like I did or follow the pattern?

Those hats are so awesome! I had to buy an extra skein of cascade 220 to finish a project and now I know what to do with the rest of it!

I bought some of the Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran for this hat (the beaufort) and it seems to be a lighter weight yarn so I'm going to go with the version that Calysa did. If you, Knittastic, have made the hat with the yarn I'd love to see it and hear about sizing issues!

I really really really would love to have Interweave Knits Spring 2007 for those Eunny Chang entrelac socks. . . Does anyone want to swap for it?! I have yarn, I can sew, embroider, knit.

Calysa -- I have finally cast on and am following your modifications which look like (so far) they are coming out perfectly. What did you do when it came to decreases??

Did you just follow the pattern?

Thanks for the help!!

PS. it looks great so far, so thanks for the pattern
