Before the blocking photo of the Slouchy Braid Hat:
It was a bit tight but fit my big giant head. However, it barely fit and didn't look weird. Well, other than it being me wearing a bright PINK! hat, which is pretty weird, if you ask me.
Then I blocked it and spent far too much time trying to get a photo of the hat on my big giant head without me looking like I'm all nose or showing half the garden. Don't ask.
The hat grew.
To the point where I wish I had used smaller size needles for the ribbing. There is plenty of room for someone who has a lot of curls to tuck into a hat and it might even look cute on someone who can pull off the look.

Talk amongst yourselves!
* Pinky D wanted to see the photo after I told her that it had been approved for posting online. I emailed it to her and her first comment was about the mascara. We have since discussed it repeatedly.
** I was raised by Mexican women who put on their faces before doing anything else. My mother, bless her heart, used to put on lipstick before going out into her veggie garden. Even though, no one but the tomatoes would see her. Don't be surprised that I put on make-up before going out into the world, people.
