I'm knitting the Topi hat from this issue of Knitty.
The first time, I knitted it a bit too long and so I have ripped it back and am prepared to start the ribbing and brim again.
The ribbing is k1p1 ribbing on size 5 needles.
My gauge is off and the hat is coming out too big. Is there anything I can do with the ribbing to make it smaller? Can I use even smaller needles? How about doing a few decreases in the round before the ribbing?
I really don't want to have to rip back to the beginning if avoidable
TIA for any advice anyone can give!!
