Tonight I started in my Breaking the Waves hat. Using (what I thought were) the recommended needle size, US 1, I got gauge of 7 stitches per inch. My head is around 22″ in circumference, so I’d need about 154 stitches. However, the pattern calls for a multiple of 8, so I started with 152.
In other hat news, I needed a project to knit on the go today, so I grabbed some worsted weight and started a Turn A Square. This is much faster!
