I’m making a hat for my aunt who’s lost her hair to chemo. I’m using a synthetic boucle yarn that driving me nuts! It’s just a pain to knit. I made a gauge, but the hat itself is still coming out too big. I have about 3" done and I hate working with the yarn so much that I REALLY don’t want to rip it all out and redo it. Is there some trick to fix it? I planning on sewing/crocheting some fun fur on the edge when I’m done. Can I sew it in there in some how so it will tighten it and make it smaller?
