I started with #6 needles after reading comments and seeing how many people said it was way too big. (I have a dang small head.)

Might have gotten the decreases slightly wrong? Finished up and it’s got a bit of a point at the top. Ugh. Considering pulling back and redoing the very end to get a more rounded top.

Redid the top, still not 100% pleased, but it seemed good enough. Wove in ends, soaked, and blocked.

Straight up too long for my head. If I were to make it again (and it is hella cute, not that difficult), I’d start the decreases sooner and decrease faster.

Took to my sis to see if it would fit her (big!) head. Nope. The pointiness of the top is super-obvious. :\ And I hate how it fits/looks on me. So: frogging it is.
