But if the decreases call for a new size needle it looks fine, but I'm a hataholic knitter and have never been able to switch sizes from brim to head and make it look smoothe.
I used the same size needle throughout the hat. It was a size 7-16in circ for the most part and then I switched to two circs to do the smaller decrease area.


When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
