So, I just finished my second Slouched Tuva Hat (http://turvid.blogspot.com/2009/05/free-pattern-slouched-tuva-hat.html). The reason why I made another was because I needed to get one that was a little smaller. My original one (posted on this forum) turned out a wee bit too big, so I went down to a size 6 needle (as opposed to the original 8's I used). I still cast on the same number of stitches.

Lo and behold, the hat turned out perfectly! It's a GREAT fit!!

I completed four rounds of ribbing before working 11 pattern repeats. Then, I began the decreases. I just love the way the pattern is maintained throughout the decreases!!

For fun, I took a picture of both hats so you can compare the sizes...

The bottom one is the one I made on the smaller needles. You can see that it is more narrow.

I used 75 grams of Caron Simply Soft in Autumn Red. I love this color!!

I'll be taking both hats to my daughter's soccer games this weekend. I'll let her teammate, the gal I made it for, select the one that is the best fit. If she chooses the smaller one, I'll frog the larger and re-knit it for me. :wink:

Thanks for looking! :muah:

Just an update...

Took both hats to the soccer games we had last weekend. The giftee selected the smaller hat. She loves it! I was pleased and have already frogged the bigger one. I am anxious to get it re-knit into my own slouchy hat!!

Thanks again, all!!
