Hello! Thanks for the great patterns! I was wondering, at what point would you recommend switching to the double pointed needles? Thanks for your help :)

I accidentally posted on the scarf page first! Sorry! I love this set, it's adorable. However, I'm having a bit of trouble on deciding where to place the decreases? When did you start your decreases? It looks to be after the 4th stripe? Thank you so much for your help! The pattern is lovely, as is the yarn (if only I wasn't on a college budget :) )

I noticed that you no longer sell the pale peach color on your website. I was wondering if you plan on restocking it/if there is a similar orange-pink color that you suggest I use as a replacement.

Strawberry ice cream is the closest:)

I've tried casting on with multiple methods and I cannot get 64 stitches to reach all the way around the circular needles. I tried using the us 15 needles to cast on and those were just too big and didn't look right. What am I doing wrong? How many stitches should I add to make it bigger?

juni 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLizy

You should not add stitches, as that will make the hat too big, try shorter circualar needles instead :)

I want to try to make this one size bigger (M-L). What should I change?

februar 24, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterLiz

Sorry, we haven't tried, but you need to add stitches and try to work around it:)

do you use a double strand of yarn for the entire hat, or just for the cast on row? the instructions do not specify.

april 7, 2015 | Unregistered Commenteranna

For the entire hat:)
