1. I've been trying to recreate an Icelandic hat for a number of years. It is similar to a tam w/ a wider cuff. It's a circular tube with a final decrease for the top, but after years of trying to do the flare by changing needles sizes, I beginning to think that it was more likely originally formed by blocking. If anyone knows of this technique would like some help.
2. Need to have size/age to inches conversion for hats. My niece is starting to outgrow my patterns and I have nothing between toddler and adult for sizing.
3. Does anyone know of a good source for Navajo rug yarn (it makes the best gloves and mittens) short of going to a trading post on the Reservation?
