Notes

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. I like the yarn ok, but I wish it was softer,hopefully it will soften a bit after washing.
