When first taken off the needles it looked way way too small. Remember, I shortened the lace section between the Fair Isle band and the crown shaping to about 3 1/2 inches. It was a squnchy little thing that perched atop my head in soft ridges. Plunge that baby into some lukewarm sweet-smelling soapy water, rinse well, stretch over the nearest 10″ mid-century modern plate, balance over a jug so all surfaces get air and voila! In this heat, an hour later it was dry, and fit nicely like a standard tam. Luckily the heat spell has lessened so I might even consider donning it in the early morning hours.
