What are you most proud of? I love the decreases and how they don't break pattern so drastically but they flow into the crown of the hat.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I always tell people to make sure they do a gauge swatch but also BLOCK that swatch! Lace opens up and if you make your unblocked swatch to a gauge that is given after blocking you will end up with a hat that is HUGE!
