I recently bought the hat pattern Losanga by Woolly Wormhead, here is what it looks like for reference:
The pattern calls for DK weight yarn, but I have this hand dyed worsted that I want to use instead. I knit a swatch and got gauge, but the fabric was too thick and did not drape how I wanted it to (as would be expected with a heavier yarn weight).
So my only option now is to change the gauge, and I think if I knit the smallest size in a larger gauge it could work out. Has anyone done something similar with a hat or fitted garment? I would love to hear others’ opinions on this.
