What are you most proud of? This is my first all knit pattern, so I'm proud that I finally did it. Although I've designed several crochet patterns and even some crochet/knit combined patterns, this one is a milestone for me. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take time to check gauge! The yarn(s) I used with this hat are known to grow when wet blocked, but if you use a yarn that is not going to behave the same way, you may have a hat that is much too small.
