Now that I have completed my first adult-sized hat, I moved on to my second. However, in Angela fashion I tweaked the pattern a touch.
- I increased the needle size from 10 to 13. The point of the hats are for warmth not necessarily fashion. That is why I started with a basic pattern and not a harder one. Larger needles allow for faster project time, and a better hat to hat turnover.
- With the larger needle size and stitches, I decreased the number of cast on stitches. I get the same width without all the extra stitches.
Ultimately, I am also hoping this approach will help me save on yarn. The more yarn I save, the more hats I can make per skein.
With these few tweaks, I am curious how it will turn out. I may like it more than the original. Who knows!
