First, the kit had plenty of yarn, and it's beautiful. Second, you're going to need sock needles to finish it. At least I did. Third, looking at the gauge and the stitch count, it seemed small to me (I don't like my hats to be all stretched out when I wear them), and at least one review suggested that it might be. So I looked at other patterns using similar yarn. Most had more stitches. I ended up adding 24 more (three repeats of the zig-zag stitch pattern), about half way between what this and other patterns call for. The result was a hat that's definitely not too snug and won't be even if washing it shrinks it a bit. That said, one or two additional repeats would likely be enough depending on how snug you want it. I will add at least one to the pattern if I make it again. I'll say again, the kit is great with plenty of lovely yarn that's a joy to knit with. Instructions are easy to follow. The top is a bit puckered; that might be resolved with blocking, but the pom pom covers it. Love the pom pom. I chose coyote.
I love this yarn and the pattern. Easy to follow and fits perfectly!!!
