I told you so. But that's not the way you'd normally see this FO. Nope. Normally, it looks like this:
Unless, of course, you see it like this:

One hat, four ways to wear it. Unless you are Piggy. I can't wear it at all, because it doesn't fit. Ooops.
I knit this -- in Ravenclaw colours -- for my Arithmancy class in the Harry Potter Knitting/Crochet House Cup. October's Arithmancy class. Ooops.
The pattern calls for fingering-weight yarn. I had a bunch of Elann Superwash Chunky (really more of a worsted) left from my Ravenclaw House Scarf, so figured casting on for the child size, using bigger needles, would yield a Piggy-sized hat.
And it would have. Unfortunately, I misread the pattern and cast on for the infant size.
C'est la guerre.
