What are you most proud of? I finished it! There were some dropped stitches and some small straying from the pattern, but it is finished and IT FITS!!! First hat I've ever had that didn't pinch itself off my head...it stayed on (It was almost 50 outside, but I wore it anyway!) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just do it first...keep going in spite of errors. Once you've done the whole thing, you can make the next one and concentrate on the pattern instead of the techniques. This was a really fun hat to make!
