FO!! -My First Hat!
I'm knitting my first hat on #7-16in circular needles and I'm using this basic pattern.

It looks like it might be too large, but the experience has been fun. It's not error free, but the ones I know I made are under the folded edge so it's not a big deal. :rollseyes:

I'm wondering something... should the edge of a folded edge hat be made slightly smaller for a couple rows so it won't flare out? I don't know that it WILL, but it seems like it might get stretched and look wonky..

Color is a little off on this photo. I forgot to adjust the white balance. :rollseyes:

Don't know about the bottom edge. See how it goes I guess, let us know!

Jouf, I LOVE those maryjanes! Jan, don't look now, I think your thread has been thoroughly threadnapped. :rofling:

Jan, sorry! Didn't mean to be a hijacker. Didn't realize quite how this part worked. Just a little slow!
