Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

love the clear colours in which these have been knit. Somehow they are brighter and more cheerful than hats knit in multi-colored wool or striped hats.

I made the medium size hat and cast on the 96 stitches as per the pattern not using this yarn, but a #4 medium weight yarn and the hat turned out too big. I suggest casting on less amount of stitches for the medium size hat.

I love this hat.I have made this one several times.Used different size needles according to yarn.Usually have to adjust needles up or cast on more when I am making one for my husband.He has a big head.Lol.And he likes them a little bigger than I do.

Never mind, i understand now that you place remaining 5 markers when shaping crown.

Knitter598 did you have any problems making the hat.If you have any questions please feel free to ask.I will help in any way I can.I just saw the comment.Sorry

I am making the medium size and there are 96 stitches. There are 6 stitch markers so do i place a stitch marker at every 16th stitch i cast on? Or is there a different way? Thanks )
