Sparkle Knit Hat Reviewed by Wendy Lennie on 2014-11-07 *
I was excited to knit this up as it looked so cute. Tested gauge etc. However, there did not seem to be enough yarn for the pattern, did not like the quick decrease as it left the top too bulky looking and pom-pom did not look too great, the rib section was way to stretchy, ended up ripping the whole thing out. The hat was too short in length, looked nothing like the picture which looks like more yarn than the one ball was used, very dissappointed. Now I have no clue what to do with the yarn.

I love the colors, however the white yarn was much finer than the colors, certainly not worsted and not very warm. I did not find this to be true with the taffy color but with that one the hat came out too large. I also didn't like the sudden decrease. Pattern needs some adjustments.

Knit the 7-12 size. Very disappointed. The length on the hat is way too short to fit the head. Also, the knit-up hat looks NOTHING like the picture. Did you add extra yarn to make it this long? I had purchased several balls of Keppi to make hats. Since the hat is such a failure, what do I do with the Keppi now????

Cute pattern, but there is a mistake, on the hat, knit 6 inches, not 60! Otherwise, quite cute!

Sparkle Knit Hat Reviewed by Carolyn Connerton on 2013-12-27 ***
I agree with the other reviewer, pom pom is way too big for the hat. I didn't care for the pattern. I did the 7-12 size and it seems wide and a bit on the short side. Don't think there would be enough yarn to make the small adult size. Also didn't like reducing 90 sts to 45 and then drawing the end yarn through them, way too much gathering at the top. Yarn is listed as medium worsted, I'd clasify it as a light worsted. In the past year I've made over 50 hats using lots of different patterns and I wouldn't make this pattern again.

Sparkle Knit Hat Reviewed by Maryanne on 2013-12-17 ***
The hat works up a nice pattern. Colors are lovely. The hat is very lightweight . The Pom Pom seems too heavy for the hat so I took it off. In the futureI would use a different pattern for the hat.
