This is my June Project Spectrum knit – Wurm. FAIL.
I have no idea what happened. It must have been my calculations. My gauge swatch returned a slightly bigger gauge than normal. Fine, but then I measured my head and looked up how big the hat should be.
My head is a good 22 inches around (it's the curly hair, I swear!). The largest size CO is 110 – divided by 5.5sts to the inch is 20inches. Right? So my mind says, "Two inches of negative ease… good right?". NOT.
Just when I think I've figured out design I am thrown for a loop. (pun not intended) How much negative ease do you give for a hat?
