I was aiming to finish my Fuschia Cabled Earflap Hat last night. It didn't dawn on me that I should finish it, until about 3 hours into watching episodes of Love & HipHop from my DVR. I had one more episode to go when I got to the crown decreases. So, I just followed the directions and carried on.
Something in my mind said that the hat looked a bit small as I was doing my decreases. However, I just decided to trust the pattern and carry on.
To make the long story short...I got so caught up in the reality TV drama, that I didn't realize I was creating my own drama. I tried on my hat and it was waaaay too small. Actually, the circumference is spot on. But, the length just doesn't cut it. I should have stuck to my formula of "knit 6.5 inches before decreasing". I mean, did I really expect the hat to fit over all these curls? Ladies and gentlemen, it is time for a do-over. Check out my kiddy cap.
