Why Hook Size Matters!

Hello!  I just wanted to pop in and share these hats that I've made a bit ago.  
I looked all over for a pattern and decided on this one: 

It calls for a 10mm hook for the brim, and a size 12 hook for the body of the hat.  
Well, I only had the 10 so I though I'll just do a looser tension and it would be fine. 
Well,  I was wrong, and it didn't fit my head at all. daughter picked me up a size 12 hook and I tried again.  
This time it turned out wonderfully and I love wearing this hat! 

I used a ball of Wool-Ease thick and quick yarn from Lion Brand.

So from the above picture you can see on the left how much bigger the proper size hook makes the hat and the smaller hat is tucked away for an extra for my kids. 

Hope you have a lovely day!

I learnt the hard way too, its certainly worth investing in all the different size hook.
