Even though I wanted it small, the first one I made was for myself and it was too small as well. I never got around to tweaking the pattern. I found another pattern recently and my hat turned out much more to my liking. It's a free tutorial by OneVirtuousWoman. She said her inspiration was from the Jeff's Cap pattern. I found her tutorial on YouTube. Click here to see it.
Here's my newest flat cap, or as she calls it "Crochango" as in crochet kango. Yea, why didn't I think of that?
