Sideways Grande

Sideways Grande is a hat from the wonderful new book "Boutique Knits" by Laura Irwin.
I had some trouble gauging this and after reading on Ravelry I don't think I was alone.
Overall, I love the pattern, but I needed to cast on 10 less stitches, for a perfect fit.

Sideways Grande
worked in: Malabrigo Chunky (less than 2 skeins)
needles: 10,9,8,7's
rating: easy
satisfaction: ok, will wear, is super warm, fit not great.

I will be jetting off on Monday where I won't be needing this very warm hat.
And I can not wait!

p.s. It is extremely difficult to take a photo of yourself in a hat!!!!
