Marigold in BFL

Pattern: Marigold By Marnie MacLean
the pattern calls for 5 mm needles, I tried that and it was huge for the 21" sz.
I had to use 4 mm and do an extra repeat for Naiomis head... would have to do 5 or 6 repeats for mine.
I used some on my handspun that was the same wpi.
the ribbing is still a bit loose and will buy some of the string elastic and run it around a couple times to make it a bit snugger...
Other than that it's a great pattern... cute and easy lace... I made the hat in a evening... (late into the evening ;)
