It does look just like the one on the cover of the book. I wouldn't be discouraged - I think you did a beautiful job.

REALLY good job, CS.....I also think it looks like the pic minus the rock and the angle she's sitting at. DEFINITELY work with it....squish it back, down, etc until youre happy with it.

I think the hat is wonderful. I want to make one now. Maybe it is just the color that makes it look like a chefs hat. I think you did great and it does look like the picture.


Good job.

I agree. It looks like it's supposed to look. The model's is squished down and pinched around at the edges. It looks like your first picture (not the chef one :rofling: ). In you second picure it's pulled up a bit.

I think you did a great job.

Block it? :thinking: How do you block a cap like this? The top is round like a frisbee. Oh, and I used Fisherman's wool for it - my thinking was, "gosh, that'll be warm and since it's a cap, it won't need to be washed often" Plus, it was just sitting in the "please use me" stash and I figured, why not?!? (size 7 needles)

Seriously, I've never blocked a cap. A sweater, yes! A scarf, yes! Squares for my throw, yes! My tea-pot cozy, yes! But see, I could do those out flat and this was knitted in one lump sum - knit band, pick-up and do crown in round/dpn, pick-up and knit bottom edge. The book didn't say to block. Maybe that's my problem!

OK, I'm ready... what do I do?

PS - I am working on my "pensive" look and searching for a big rock! THEN it will look just like the picture! Yeah, right, and my cheek bones will look just like hers, too!
