i am disappointed in this hat.



It's based on the Cabled Newsboy from SNBN, but I took out the cables and ribs and did eyelets instead, as you can (sort of ) see in the middle pic, and neglected to account for the difference in gauge. So the hat is sort of short and wide. I also made the brim smaller since I thought it was a little big on the first one I made, but now I think this one's too small. (Insert your own Goldilocks joke, I'm too tired for corny humor today. Or any humor, really.) Check out the picture on the right, for example. The thing is, now that I'm looking at the pics, I'm kind of liking it. But on my head, I wasn't too fond of it. It's especially hard to decide if I like it or not because it's not for me, it's for Kate, and she's 2,000 miles away and can't try it on.

I'm probably going to redo the brim. If it were for me, I'd add a pom-pom too. But it's not. Unless you want a pom-pom, Katie?
