I'll probably felt them with Cascade 220 until I find something better to knit with...

I just have to get Elisha to measure her head now =)

08.29.05
My friend, Dan, asked me to make him a beanie... he offered to get me something in exchange, but he's given me such neat things =) like my own domo doll and a hindinanotami (god how do you spell it?!?!) so him and his big head (24.5 inches) are making it hard for me to find a pattern to accomodate... most patterns don't mention what size head it will for or if the hat stretches...

oh, and i apparently have a large head for an adult woman (22 inches). aaron said it was my hair but it still makes me sad *sniff* most women hat sizes stop at 20 inches.

but here are some resources i've found...

Online Conversions
some of the measurements are in centimeters and others are in inches...

Owen Wilson's hat from Life Aquatic (for me)
