  1. I purchased the new hat loom and I am totally baffled by the sizes they indicate on the chart. None of the sizes match the outcome of the piece. I have tried several different types of yarn, including the one they suggested but the hats are so much bigger than the chart indicated. Im very disappointed, is anyone else having this issue?
