I really like that hat a lot! Did you have a pattern for the decreases or did you just wing it? I've been looking for a good hat pattern myself and I haven't found anything I'm happy with.

Nope, no pattern.
I tried following the general hat guidelines, but it wasn't coming out right, so I altered it and amazingly it worked out great.
On my first decrease row I k8, k2tog, k8, k2tog, etc to end of row.
Maintain (tried to anyway) stitch pattern across next row.
k4, k2tog, k4, k2tog ect across row.
Maintain (tried to anyway) stitch pattern across next row.
k2tog across row.
Maintain (tried to anyway) stitch pattern across next row.
k2tog across row.
Did that until I had 8 stitches remaining, thread yarn through them and seamed up the hat.

Both hats I've done I've not used a pattern. There's been some trial and error, but I think I've just been very lucky that they came out so well.


Thanks for the compliments too. ^_^

I've started on this hat and I'd like to know when I should start to decrease.

Thank you.

I think I started the decreases at about 6 inches. If I remember right, it decreases pretty quickly so I got it to where I wanted it and decreased.

Jeez, now that I think about it I don't know if was was 6 or 7 inches.

Sorry I can't help more. I don't have the hat anymore, so I can't even measure it to find out or anything.

Hope it works out for you! Glad you liked it so much. ^_^
