I think I made the world’s longest hat.
No joke. It’s really big.
It’s an Antler Hat from tincanknits. I thought I followed the pattern, but something happened.
The hat on the right is a normal, long-ish beanie that I made for my husband. The hat on the right is the one I just knit up. It’s like twice the size!
Even if I fold up the brim, it’s so long!I look like a silly gnome when I wear it.I need to rip out the crown and take out a couple pattern repeats. After all, the pattern is absolutely gorgeous, and looks great in my Tosh DK. It’s just too long. Look at that great cable!I feel like I’ve been on a streak of not-quite-correctly finished knitting projects. Oh well, it just means I have more knitting to do!
could you instead rip out the ribbing and the first couple of repeats? You would then be able to get a better idea of finished fit…..
I like that idea- but it’s knit from the bottom up. I always hesitate to rip out knitting from the “wrong” end.
I have made this hat three times. You did not make a mistake – following the pattern exactly does leave you with a very tall hat! (ErinJoelle on Ravelry)
Phew! At least it’s not just me
