Casting on for a hat
I don't know why, but my last few attempts to make a simple hat have gone wrong. The hat is either too big, or too small.

How do you knot how many stitches to cast on for a hat, done in the round. All I want is a 1 inch rib, then stockinette. Ultra simple, but I cannot get it right.

Please help,
webigail

I was all over Crazy Aunt Purl's site last night, figured she had a formula, but didn't see it. Thanks for the chuckle...she really does crack me up
