Notes

Couldn’t resist this pattern, it’s so cute. I’m taking into account what other knitters have said about this hat turning out very small, and I’m reconfiguring the pattern.
I’m using a total of 8 colours, to use up leftovers.
Cast on 124 sts with 2.75 mm needles (with hindsight, 3 mm needles would have given a bit more stretch).
12 rows of corrugated rib.
Changed to 3.25 mm needles and increased to 168 sts.
Border pattern worked (repeated 8 times).
Increased to 189 sts.
Body pattern worked (repeated 9 nines).
Decreased to 168 sts.
Border pattern worked again .
Decreased to 147 sts.
Top pattern worked (as in original pattern).
i-cord loop to finish.
