Reminds me of the first hat I made for my son -it was just a *weee* bit large! LOL, but hey he's grown into it! Then again maybe we got used to it

Anyway, it sure is a nice looking hat! I agree, if you can, try felting it a bit. I had to pass a hat down from DS to DD because we accidentally felted it a little, and its perfect for her now.

Good luck-if it can't be felted you could either frog it or donate it-I'm sure there is someone to fit it out there!

Ah well...sizing happens.

In other news "U-C-L-A SUCKS!" Sorry it's a permanently conditioned filial response to your hat.

It's a great hat, but you need to find someone with a bigger head to give it to.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

It is a very nice hat. I agree with losnana, try felting it. The 1st hat I made for my very petite niece was bigger than that
