Miss Dashwood hat: Julie?
Julie! I was looking for that Miss Dashwood hat you made & just found it and the pattern. I didn't realize it was for a baby. Did you make it for a baby?

I would kind of like to make this for me, although it might look ridiculous. Without the ear flaps, and like, a summer hat out of cotton. Do you think that would work or would it be too floppy for an ADULT!



:thinking:

Heeeeeee :rofling:

I suppose you could adjust the pattern (or use a heavier yarn) to make it in an adult size, but WOW, you would have my intense admiration because the cast on took for-freaking-ever for the smallest baby size....I cannot even fathom having the patience to cast on 180 stitches or more in that manner!! But that's just me....

On the floppiness issue....mine is floppier than the pattern calls for because I used a lighter weight yarn. The gauge matched but the pattern says it calls for that yarn so it would be extra dense and warm. So I think if you used maybe a worsted weight or heavy worsted weight yarn it would not be quite as floppy. I've seen a few pictures of this hat knitted in cotton and it looked much stiffer.

HTH!

I completely understand your frustration.

By all means don't try *that* hat if you're already frustrated! I swore more while knitting that hat than any time in recent memory. Until I got past the bobbles, that is....then it was smooooth sailing to the end. But I swore up and down I'd never make it again. But it's kind of like childbirth....they're so cute you almost forget the pain....
