The Deceptively Large Head Strikes Again

Last night I finished my "Le Slouch" hat, wove in the ends and ran to the mirror to try it on.


It's not so much "Le Slouch" as it is "Le Tuque" on my noggin.

Here's hoping some severe blocking will help.

C'est tragique, ma grande tete!


  1. I feel your pain. Perhaps that's why I've avoided hats my entire life... it's just too hard to find one that fits right... apparently even making it yourself is no guarantee.

  2. Steph you really don't look like you have a large head... it must be some bizarre optical illusion.

  3. I too have a large melon. I haven't made a beret yet that looks proper on me. Good thing I like this whole knitting thing.

  4. Hey! Something that you can put on your head? And it's supposed to actually go on your head? Say it ain't so, Steph...

    Seriously, you look so cute in touques - don't sweat it, can't wait to see it in person.

  5. Bwahahahahaha. Gasp. Har.

    Punkin' head.

    The girl with the crooked ankles who noticed today that one calf is definitely bigger than the other. Presumably because one ankle is more bowed than the other.

  6. too bad your hat is too small ... could it be a christmas gift to help alleviate some of the panic?

    I have a deceptively small head ... looks way bigger than it is (puffy hair, big cheeks ... but small circumferance --- we all have our secret shame!)


  7. What, no pictures?

    Is it an issue with gauge, or have others mentioned ittybittiness?

  8. I have a big noggin, too -- you know, 'cause it's so full of brains and stuff. Um, yeah.

  9. Did you block it yet Steph? It's not like you looked funny in it or anything, it just didn't look slouchy. Can't wait to see if the blocking helps.

    Maybe you don't have to do anything to "fix" it Steph..maybe it was destiny...you know...like maybe someone in your family is really needing a slouch hat that will actually look like a slouch hat on her head...hmmmmmm.....does this sound like begging?????

  11. okay - it looks like the majority of knitters have bigger than average heads... myself included. i'm with allison, it is to hold our larger than average, smarter than most, clever, creative, knitterly brains!

  12. Alison C7:48 p.m.

    Okay, that was confusing. I read these comments and thought "hey, I don't remember making that comment". Well, it wasn't me, it was another Alison spelled the same way! Too confusing for my poor brain. I'm signing this one differently, just so I don't confuse myself even more!

  13. J'ai besoin d'un grand chapeau aussi. I will start a new line of crocheted hats; "bigger gauges for bigger brains"....or egos.
    ps will try to get to kol soon xox
