I am attempting to knit a hat using the magic loop method and am wondering what size cable to use. The hat is for an adult woman, I'm thinking about 23-24in in diameter. I have the knitpicks options 24" and 32" cables already.
I knit hats with a 24" but I have to use the single loop version of ML to start. When I increase after the ribbing, there's usually enough sts to fit comfortably. If the head is 23" you need to knit it 21 or 22" around or it'll be way too loose.
