What size are you making Em? I did the 18-24 mos on 12's with no problem. I havent made the smaller ones though (and I hate DPN's too).

Im making the 12-24 mo. I just assumed bc thats what it said in the pattern. I cant remember how many stitches on are there... Im also knitting it with madtosh dk, which is pretty light weight. Im getting 5.5spi on 5s.

I will never make my kids hats. OK, maybe I will, but ill put up a fight. I made Piper a HH last year and wanted to poke my eye out. This hat is for a yymn to match some longies I did for her. And I have another hat and the very end of my customs list to match a gift wrap romper. But those are both nb. The hat Im doing now is basically a small adult, but its for a toddler, hes just got a big noggin lol

I always use 2 circs instead of DPNs. Its similar to MLing, but I don't have needles that are good for ML.

i tried the 2 circ method once before too but there were too many needles for me lol. Which is why I hate dpns. Too much stuff to keep track of.

Here's a pic that was posted in my wahm thread. She wanted me to make it bigger so that it would fit longer. So she sent it back and I *thought* I made it bigger. I made it in the next side well I guess now it doesn't fit. So the mama doesn't want to deal with resizing. Which is understandable but im just bummed.

Like its too small. The original fit perfect, she wanted it a Tad bigger so I did what you do to make it bigger and now its too small. I don't know story of my life right now
