Hey, Hey, Hey... it's a little big. :-/
Yes, I swatched. Yes, the swatch met gauge. No, I did not compare the circumference of the hat pattern to the circumference of my head. :-/
So, not only is this hat too big for me, it's also too big for Hubba. (He would not let me take a photo to share with you all.)
So I've been taking suggestions for ways to make the nightcap useful because I am not going to rip it out and start over...
- felting and subsequently shrinking it in the washer/dryer or a bucket with a plunger
- adding elastic
- adding a drawstring
- finding a larger than 24.5 inch head
- lining it and adding a strap to make a purse
Of course, you're sure to see some great projects that may even fit if you head over to Fiber Arts Friday, hosted by The Wonder Why Gal.
