I was reluctant to start a project the size of the other, monstrous head-eating squid hat, so I decided to make this one. The original pattern was supposed to be for a baby, but when I knitted it, the hat was more or less big enough. I think it would've been better if I knitted it a bit bigger, but I figured if it didn't fit I would've turned it into a stuffed toy or something.
Incidentally, the original gauge was supposed to be 6 1/2 stitches to the inch, and I got 4 1/2 stitches.

Is it really tight? Did you follow the directions for the baby hat?
