I have another problem to be solved with my brother's hat.
I got about an inch into it, and realized that I had twisted it. Sigh.
Soo, I pulled it all off the needles, but before ripping it out, I set it on his head to see if it was the right size. It seemed... pretty big. I know it's just the rim, and once I knit up the rest it'll at least stay on his head... but I'm afraid it might just be too big?
I cast on 88 sts, but now I've measured his head. It's checks in at exactly 23 in, which, multiplied by my gauge is 92. Now, if 88 seemed too big, 92 certainly wont fit! Should I go with the gauge size, or 88 sts, or make it smaller? A tremendous thanks to all who answer! I need it finished by Christmas morning... and that isn't much time at all!
