|Gah! I love my hair!!|
I have a teeny tiny head (exclusive of hair!) and I also knit pretty loosely, so I used a size 5mm needle, one size down from recommended. It came out just right for me. The style of this cap includes just a tiny bit of slouch - I think this is the perfect amount.
I wanted to use as much of my yarn as possible, so I added a few rows. I'm going to write up a post for tomorrow to tell you the trick I used to figure out when to start shaping the crown. I took a whole lot of pictures while I was knitting it, so it definitely needs to be broken down into two posts!
I know a few of you are brand-new knitters, and I've had a couple requests for tips on circular and DPN knitting. So I'm planning on making a second version of this hat and doing a tiny tutorial series with a video or two. I got the same yarn, but in a lovely orangey-rust that should go nicely with the coat I'm planning to make this fall. Ooooooh! Exciting!
