I’ve tried twice to make a hat this way…watched a video that told me to measure the head (24") and then multiply it by the number of stitches in your swatch. I was knitting 4 stitches per inch so I cast on 96 stitches and went to town with a simple beanie hat. It is WAY to big around and just sits on my husbands head! So I watched another video that said to subtract two inches from the head measurement as this will make the hat snug rather than loose…I did that and it’s still way to big and just sits on the head…HELP!!
I’m using a size 9 wooden 16" circular with Patons worsted weight yarn.
