This is the new cable hat in Winter 2009 Interweave. I decided to use my new hand spun and guess what - it is 26" around (without stretching). My head is 22 on a good day - more like 21 if a hat really fits. It is a cable repeate in the pattern so I'm torn. Do I just go down a few needle sizes or do I ditch the project or try and modify the pattern?? The pattern says the finish hat should be between 24" and stretch 26" - regardless that is too big. I hate frogging ... but did it last night!
I'm a knitter and a lover of all fiber arts. Could there be enough time in the day to design and knit everything you want?? I keep busy by being outside, getting into trouble, and being a general good pain in the ass!
