I know something new about myself now. I hate tight hats. I made this one and it is just a wee bit too snug and it drives me bonkers. Since it is totally finished, I can't bring myself to rip it out. Plus, I have enough yarn that I could knit myself another one in a bigger size so there is really no need to frog it. I have already knit this hat too small another time in a totally different yarn. Maybe it is not meant to be? Or, maybe I need to realize that the brim always appears bigger than it will actually be.
I like the asymmetrical design and the fun little detail at the front that features a button. In this case, a selection from my tin of vintage buttons.
If you see me in person and think your head is the right size for this hat, hit me up. I may offer it up for fittings in hopes of finding it a good home.
For those that like the knitterly details:
The yarn is Knit Picks Simply Cotton Organic Worsted. The pattern is a free one by Mary Keenan called Double Double Cloche. Here is my Ravelry project. Thanks to Paul for taking most of these pictures.
