The hat is for my niece :rollseyes:
You must be right.
It's one of those hats where you knit one side (using a provisional cast-on), then you come back & get those lives stitches, and knit another hat in the other direction. When you're done, you shove the 2nd hat inside the 1st hat, and you have a double layer. You can use two different colors, too, but I didn't.
It also looks big 'cause I have it hanging down on a container that is too small to fill it. I'm hoping that washing & blocking will take the lumpiness away.[/quote]
