The Gauge

A new hat! Only I had to take it out 4 times due to sizing, since I assumed the yarn would have the same gauge as the last yarn that I used for this pattern....I WAS WRONG. You think after taking it out three times I would figure it out. Well I didn't. I would create the hat as per the pattern and then start knitting it up only to realize this is too small, it would only fit a child. I would take it out and add 4 stitches...I really had to add 16. I still think its too small, but the person Im gifting to has a small head, according to Christopher. 

Here is a website about why GAUGE is so important.
