My friend Sara knit this great hat from Knitty. The Calorimetry. Well, not really a hat, more of a band. She said that she would prefer it a bit narrower. I was also reading someone else's blog that made the same suggestion. I knit mine out of Kilcarra yarn. I love the green. I used the yarn from a pair of fingerless gloves that never came to pass, but didn't want to waste the yarn.
I modified the number of repeats. I only did 5 short row turns, then continued on as specified. It seems to fit me better that way.
