I just knit a winter hat with Lion Brand bulky yarn #5. I used size 9 needles and the pattern said it fit all adult heads. (I have a large head) The hat turned out about an inch and a half too large around and the wind seems to blow through it leaving me cold. I want to make a couple more with matching scarves. Should I use smaller needles, increase tension or put fewer stitches on the needle????
Thank you for any help.
