Just a note: The acrylic yarn has more of a stretch than cotton yarn. So keep in mind when working with cotton yarn you may need to subtract one inch from your head measurement to take into account the lack of stretch. For example, if you measure 12 inches for your head size you will need to create 11 inches for the hat. This again is an approximation. If you are making the project for yourself you can create the foundation chain and place it around your head. Making sure it is not to tight around your head.
