hat: the size

gandhi’s statue in union square is bigger than one would think.. i had done size guesstimations like it’s one third bigger than the largest man’s head in the crowd…numbers or rather accurate distance guesstimations aren’t my strongest suit, luckily my friend marie, who lives in nyc, brought her ladder to union square and generously measured his head for me! :]  merci so mucho marie!!

*on sizing the hat for knitting, if you know your circumference [here 29-3/4″], then knit a small swatch w/ your chosen needles & yarn a couple of inches wide and about an inch high, then measure how many stitches you are getting per inch. divide your circumf. by stitches per inch, then you know how many loops to begin with to achieve the right sized hat*
