What advice would you give someone starting this project? This comes together quite well. Would recommend two things: 1. Perhaps I am from a peanut-headed family but the adult hat is quite large. Check gauge because that's where I made my mistake. 2. As someone who needs stitch markers, I found the best place to insert stitch marker was in the chain one of the beginning of each row. That way, I knew where to slip stitch when I came around the bend.
