I wanted to see how it knit up in sock yarn. I used the same size needles, cast on 90 sts, worked k1, p1 ribbing for an inch or so then increased up to 100 sts and continued on with the pattern. The resulting hat used up a full 50 gram ball of sock yarn and it fits a 2yr old perfectly! The 2yr old was having way too much fun playing outside to stand still for a photo shoot so pictures on my dining room table will have to do!

|side view, that was all the yarn left over|
Yarn - Patons Kroy I think the colour is Lilac Jacquard
Mods - Knit 8 1/2 pattern repeats then decreased
To tell the truth I was aiming for another adult sized hat and I had intended on casting on 100 sts and increasing to 110 sts. Ooops! I'm not sure if I was starting this too late at night or if I was talking and counting at the same time! Anyways that's the beauty of knitting hats. Whatever size you end up with it will fit someone!
So, you know what this means right? Yes, I'm sure you guessed. I'll just have to try again :)
