Keppi Hat

I finally finished the Keppi Hat after a little bit of a snag.

My daughter loves it and I haven’t seen it since this photo!!  However, it’s first finish wasn’t so successful.

The label on the yarn says that “one balll makes a HAT from baby to adult size small”.   I knit the adult size small as per the pattern – the above picture is of my then 11 year old daughter – you can see that it is nowhere near big enough.  And lest you think she has a freakishly large head…

here is her  9 year old brother wearing the same hat.  After knitting the hat (I actually went all the way and decreased and closed the top), I wasn’t sure what to do.  Should I just scrap it, should I take it out and knit something smaller that wouldn’t fit anyone in our family???  I decided to buy another ball of yarn, rip back and finish the hat.

I’m glad I did because my daughter is sooo pleased, but I really dislike being told a project requires one ball of yarn just to find out that it needs more.  Oh Well, all’s well that ends well!
