Side Slip Cloche from Boutique Knits

I have been wanting to make a hat and gloves to go with my Stars sweater.   There was A LOT of yellow left and a little of most of the others. The pattern in the kit that I bought was not the Stars that I made and had a lot of yellow in it.  So I have a yellow hat. 

I decided on this pattern for my hat because it came down over the ears and would not be that hard to alter.  It said 22″ head and I am 23″ unless I have a headache, then I would swear it blows up to at least 25″.  That includes sinus headaches. 

The band is made first and sewn together at a right angle.  I did this and gave it a good look.  Even though I went ahead and picked up stitches for the crown and knit about 4″, I am still not certain that I like it.  Maybe I’ll like it better when it is finished.  I can always change it.  It isn’t mentioned in the pattern, but I made the first and last stitches the same as mitres or most side seams.  I knit the first stitch in the back loop and slipped the last stitch with the yarn in front.  It looks so much better.

I picked up about 20 more stitches for the crown than the pattern called for.  And I also plan to knit an extra 1/2″ or 1″.  I’ll have to change the decreases, but that’s all right.  I’m used to fiddling with things.
