[FONT=“Trebuchet MS”]Hi all,
I’d like to make one of the two patterns below and also use up a skein of Wool-Ease I have had forever. I’m wondering if this will work.
It would be good if this pattern - http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter07/PATTtoasty.html
- ended up slightly bigger, because my toddler’s giant head is 21" around and the pattern only results in a hat 18" around. Of course, I would only use one strand instead of the double-stranding.
The other pattern I’m thinking about is
but a change in size of the FO probably wouldn’t be good for that.
If it helps, I tend to knit tightly. I just finished a project (my first sweater vest!) that was supposed to be done on size 8 needles and I used size 10 to get the right gauge.
Any advice for a kinda-new knitter? TIA!![/FONT]
