My hat looks stupid





It's too short. No matter how much I tug it down, it won't cover my ears. And since it's ribbing all the way up, it's too puffy on top. I followed the directions (went 6 inches before decreasing). I was a little worried about it being too short, but there wasn't enough yarn in one skein to add some length. I'm going to have to find someone with a small head to give it to...

Warning: If you receive this pattern in the mail, DON'T make it, unless you want to look like a mushroom.

  • i think it's gorgeous...unfortunetely no one has ever said I had a small head, so i can't offer to take it off your hands...

  • Looks darling. FYI, I made one (short like yours, no ribs)then decided it was shorter than I wanted (only used 1 skein). I washed it and stretched it longer. Is now longer than I wanted! Rose
