Yeah Yeah Yeah! My hat is done AND I like it! I didn't like the shape I was getting with the 16 per round decrease, so I ripped back and did 10 per round.
Sue, this is the same hat with the linen stitch that I posted about last weekend. I used the 2-row repeat, still don't know what the designer was doing with a 4-row repeat, but I am very pleased with my hat. Washing today and pics tomorrow.
