I love this project. It’s big but it just flies off the needles.

Knitting math not being my forte, I insisted that the decrease rows were off and so went off on my own after Row 7 on the pattern. I ditched the rest of the instructions and started a k11, k2tog decrease round going down to k4, k2tog (with 2 plain rows in between) until I had 54 stitches. Then did the more rapid decreasing until I had 9 sts left.

And of course, I just had to have a pompom!

Eibee has claimed this hat so I suppose I should just knit another one for the rest of the family then.
