Notes

Pattern calls for using size 8 DPNS to begin and then swapping to size 9 DPNs. Having made this hat before, I’ve started with size 8 circulars and then swap to DPNs when decreasing and binding off the project.

08/07/10: Finished the hat last night and it’s obvious that not doing a gauge made it for the size of pixies instead of an adult head. Quick internet poll discovered the average adult head is 22” and the opening is 14”, with the sizing supposed to be 17”. I’ve started a second hat, gauged it out this time and I’m using size 10s this time around.
