I have a finished object.
Yarn: 2 skeins of Sulka Shade 209; 50g/50m/55yds
Needles: 6.5mm and 5.5mm
Sulka’s a pretty chunky (and delightfully warm!) yarn. The pattern typically recommends knitting a bulky yarn only till the line in the first chart, but as recommended by at least one of the members of Ravelry, I finished the first chart with my chunky yarn to try to make it a little more slouchy. Then I did the second chart once through, followed by the first five rows, though with the fifth I omitted the yarn-overs so that it would take it in a little bit so the hat would stay on my head. I finished up with the smaller needles doing a 2×2 rib.
I totally dig on this hat, I feel so kitschy cute!
