    I am going to start a Beloved (or 12) after I finish this Flax Sweater. I have already bought the pattern, but I am concerned about my giant head. (Although my melon does measure 22 inches, as is the cap on the adult size, I feel I have a much bigger head than all the adults I see sporting their Beloveds. I always have trouble buying hats.) Will you ever consider adjusting the pattern for plus-sized noggins? Would some serious and aggressive blocking be enough? 😜

      Hi Pattie – The bonnet size is pretty generous, but it’s super easy to make it bigger: just work the 4 row repeat in the increase with short rows section one extra time.

        Thanks! I bet I can do that!

        What about using a slightly thicker yarn and possibly bigger needles? You can tell I’m a novice, can’t you?

        Hi Pattie – yep, that would work too!
