I've got an Unoriginal Hat on the needles in Malabrigo Chunky for my sister in law, Katie. I reduced the needle size to 5.5mm to adjust for the finer yarn, although it dawned on my last night that I could have doubled the yarn and worked the pattern as writen. Regardless, Katie will probably prefer something less bulky.
Pattern modifications included an extra 14 sts at the cast on, 2 extra set up rows, and 7 extra rows before the crown decreases (in a basic cable, no more big cable).
The tension is nice and firm on the small needles and I've taught myself how to cable without a cable needle!
