Word of advice

If a pattern calls for DK weight yarn and a cast on of 128 stitches…..don’t use worsted weight and the same number of stiches….even if you think your kid has a big head….

PIc 129 

Just sayin’….

    Oh no! Sad day. Felt it!
    It looks really good though! I want to make that hat, but I’m scared of it.

    That’s hilarious! Great picture! And I always worried I was the only one who made people try stuff on while on the needles…

    That is a gorgeous hat–is it feltable yarn?

    Well if it was 100% wool you could felt it, and it’d be a very warm hat.

    Your stitches look great though!

    Beautiful hat! Rotten fit! Compliment him lots and maybe his head will swell?

  12. It looks really good, as long as your son’s head is a coffee pot!

    Oh, I’m laughing with you…really. 🙂

    Swatches? Who needs them?

  13. Tina says:

    Oh, my! Too bad on such a beautiful knitting. Maybe it will felt as someone suggested?

  15. Lisa says:

    Been there. I feel for you, all that color-work. Maybe it should be a felted hat?
