Notes

5/1/13 I started this on size 10 48” circulars doing magic loop, it was too tight so I went up to 10.5s. I think this got restarted 2 or 3 times after that. Finally got going using travelling loop. Seemed like it was going to fit but it’s ended up still too tight so I’m waiting for some 16” circulars for ease of knitting then I’m going to frog it and start over. I used Tumeric from knitpicks in the beginning but it was too dark and I had to switch to some iltw that I had in Sungold.

6/26/13 I tried the 16” circulars in US 10.75 and my gauge was still too tight and couldn’t get used to the shorter points of a 16” so ended up with two 24” 11’s and that got the job done. The hat’s a bit tight STILL but it fits well enough. My head’s small. I didn’t think my knitting was that tight, really. Guess it is. :| I also don’t have a mannequin here to model it for me so it’ll be a lil bit before I get a pic up.
