Hi All, I chose the following pattern for my very first hat:
I have the right weight of yarn, the right needles, and the pattern says the gauge is not really necessary since its stretchy.
I include an image of the first 10 rows. The hat looks really small regardless of its stretchiness! Should I be worried, I have no idea how to know this makes an adult hat until its finished.
I’ve looked at other less stretchy hat patterns in similar yarn (less ribbing) and the number of CO stitches is always similar.
So the main question is, should I be concerned? Do all hats look really small when first being knitted? If it is too small, how do I adjust the pattern to make a larger hat? and how do I know how to make it the right size for an average adult head?
