  1. Hi, I've got some lovely wool for this hat but it's for 8mm needles, 16 rows/11 stitches, needles US11...how do I modify the pattern please? Any advice much appreciated!

    1. That's actually a much thicker yarn, and would really be writing an entirely new pattern to modify this one to accommodate a totally different yarn. I've made baby hats in the past using yarn this thick, however, and if I can find my notes on how I did it, I'll share the pattern in the future.
