I’m not sure I like this hat now that it’s knit up, and it’s all Mid’s fault. He told me that I looked like I was wearing a swim cap.
I do like the pattern, and I think I’ll knit another one. I didn’t knit it long enough or loose enough and the yarn really needed to go up a needle size. The one time my gauge goes tight, and I end up with a swim cap.
I love this photo-nothing like being photobombed by a stuffed penguin.
size 5 needles
Red Heart Soft in Butterscotch
Knit to pattern specifications. Next one I would go up a size and knit it longer on top.
