Hello!
Notes

Smallest head circumference in pattern is 21.75 and my head is 21”. Also I’m using bulky yarn and 4 mm needles, getting 20 sts to 4” where pattern gauge calls for 26 sts: 4”. Unless I want it flopping over my eyes (I don’t), I’m going to have to modify the pattern.

So - for hat part, cast on 90 sts, giving 15 trellis pattern repeats. Start decreases k2tog k8, k2 rows even, k2to k7 etc. - this means that decreases don’t line up as they would in the original pattern, but does compensate for gauge issues arising from my gauge.

For ear-flappy parts cast on 26 sts for each side and knit 2 @ a time on 5.5 mm needles. Knit until yarn ran out!
