NotesHold the yarn DOUBLE throughout the project. (Two strands held together at all times, to make a thicker yarn)
Given the fact the hat does turn out so big, you can make it smaller by decreasing the number of stitches after working your initial k1, p1 ribbing. Just play around and see what you can get.
