Bashful

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Bashful by Marlaina Bird Link to website or photo http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/bashful-2 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!
