Thanks so much for sharing the link for the Capucine hood! I had been looking for something to make using my first skein of wool from Cold Antler Farm's Wool CSA and started it last night using Lion Brand Thick and Chunky Wool Ease - it's working up beautifully. I may try it using the worsted Wool Ease as a child's pattern - that we'll see about tomorrow!
Thanks again - I follow you regularly but tend to be a lurker. BTW I have a giveaway going on right now and you could win your choice of either a $50 or a $25 gift certificate from me to spend in my shop. Give it a try!

Hi there! I love the way you have really perfected this hat. May I ask...did you block it before taking these photos? I am using the same yarn and needle size as you, and I'm not a super tight knitter, but the ear area is really warped and the ribbing isn't so great either. If so, which method did you use? Putting it on something round or pinning it etc? I've knit two of these so far and neither fit right. I'm vexed. I appreciate any help you can give. Thanks!

Hi Leo :) I knit this a while back so the details are sketchy in my mind but I know for sure that I did not block the hat. Which cast on are you using? Maybe you should try going up a needle size or two just for the cast on? If it's tight it could be "pulling in" the hat. I am sure I used the long tail cast on for this hat. Let me know and good luck!
