Starting Over

I ripped out the first attempt at this hat design I'm working on because it was too big even though I did a Swatch. Plus, I didn't like the reverse stockinette stitch.  The second time I did the ribbing in a US 7 and the body in a US 8.  I'm not going to kid you it was painful since it was almost finished. But, worth it to get a Design I'm happy with. Needless to say I LOVE this Malabrigo Rios yarn!  The yarn and the hat sample will be at The Little Knittery when we reopen in September.
