I made something that wasn't a scarf!!
Lol ok so it was a hat, but it's not a scarf and that's a huge step for me. I'm not making a little pouch for my boyfriends mp3 player.

I do have a question though. The hat I made was a little loose around my tiny head! So I'd like to make one to fit better, should I reduce the number of stitches that I cast on (which won't disturb the pattern) or use smaller sized needles? I'm not sure how to adjust to make it fit better.

I feel so relieved that I branched out from scarves. I even tried to do the mp3 player sock with DPN's but that was a disaster. What was I thinking

So yeah how can I make the hat tighter around my head?
Love and Hugs

Either way should reduce the size of the hat. I personally would probably go with same needles and less stitches, but I don't think it really matters which way you do it. Where are the pics???
