This is (was) the Turn a Square hat by Jared Flood, a gift for my brother's birthday next week. I ignored the cardinal rule of knitting--check your gauge!--and the hat was just too baggy. And though my brother admits to having a large head (literally), I wasn't pleased with the loose fabric I got when knitting with the suggested size 7 needles.
The thing is, I knew I should go down a needle size. I knew it, but ignored that nagging little voice in my head. Guess I'll listen a little more closely next time!
