Notes

I liked this pattern, however, I tried this hat with 96 stitches and it turned out too huge. This time I CO 86, with US6 circular needles (switched to size US8 after ribbing..I Did a 4” ribbing and the hat measured 8” before I started the decreases. I started with the K14, decrease, as I only had 86 stitches. This hat fits a female head, but it stretches out pretty well to fit a mans head as well.
