My Very First Non-Scarf Project!!!
I made this hat for my sister's baby, which is due in July. It's slightly HUGE as far as baby hats go, but luckily my sister has three other children with varying head sizes--it's bound to fit SOMEONE.

If anyone would like to explain the concept of gauging to me, I would be much obliged; I have a feeling my ignorance on that issue has something to do with my hat size problem.

very cute colors- re: gauge you may need smaller needles next time. check Amy's pages above for gauge and try searching the topics... checking your gauge will tell you how many stitches/inch you get, which you compare with the pattern to make sure the finished produt will be the same size.....
did I say one project at a time?
