Notes

A: Gold
B: Brown
C: Red

This has come out smaller than I expected. I went down a needle size because I usually have to. Once the hat is blocked, I’ll check my finished gauge. This will just about go on my 24” head, but it’s a squeeze.

It also doesn’t feel quite long enough. I don’t like the short brim either.

It’s loosened up a little with blocking, but not much. The only person it fits is Jamie. Stitch tension (blocked) is almost spot on. I’m only out 1 stitch per 10cm. Obviously, this hat is intended for smaller heads than mine. My Row gauge is way off and my hat has turned out 2” shorter than it should be.
