What materials did you use? Needed to make some samples showing the same pattern in two yarns. The larger hat, in Tahki Tara Tweed (80 percent unspun wool and 20 percent nylon), was knit on US 8s with US 7s for the ribbing. It's much too large, but I think I can felt it down to make it wearable. The second hat, in Malabrigo worsted (100 percent merino), was knit on US 7s with US 5 ribbing. It turned out much better. The yarn was a lot nicer to work with, too. The tweed would break with the slightest stress, so I ended up knitting more loosely than I'd like.
