Thanks, ladies!

Yes, I tried it on and so did my husband. It seems to be just fine. Whew!

Jan its looking great! I love the color.

Everytime Ive started a ribbed hat in one size needle and moved to a bigger for the next part I have never been happy with it. Either the wearer folds their hat at a place that looks silly to me (hypercritical perhaps) or I end up wishing I had just stayed with a smaller needle size for the entire project. 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.

Thanks!

Jan,

some data points/observations to help on your question ... on the little hat I just finished I had thought I should block the hat and in the process press up the bottom fold so that it would fold rather than roll. Beside the fact that I was disappointed in how blocking it smushed the texture, I think the bottom edge that I folded up did indeed stretch out/flare out a bit (may not be noticeable in the picture I posted, but it was enough to make me pout a little). Sounds to me like your idea of making that initial edge either a few stiches fewer OR starting with one size smaller needle and switching after the ribbing might just be the right idea. Besides not blocking the hat like I did.... I'll be anxious to hear if you think this one ends up looking ok or slightly flared.

Actually it worked out fine. I didn't do anything to it and the edge seems to lay nicely. I forgot about having enough stitches for the pattern so the smaller needle for a few rows is a good idea!
