Notes

After reading the pattern ran small, I made a few changes. I cast on as called for in size US6 needles. After knitting the ribbing I went up to a size US7 needle and increased 20 stitches (k5, m1 around). This added in two heart repeats on the body of the hat. I knit five rows of hearts then when I got to the decreases I knit one round plain after my final heart, then worked k13, k2tog around. After that I knit one less stitch before the k2tog until I had 8 stitches left.

The fit ended up great after blocking. Next time I might even increase another 10 stitches after the ribbing for a slouchier look. blogged
