Neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeat!  I need one.  Maybe my mom has some fabric she wants to get rid of...

Holy moly!  It's incredible.  Wow.  I love it.

There might be an easier way to do this than casting on the dowel.  I would do a provisional cast-on (video available on http://knittinghelp.com) so that way you don't have to worry about the awkwardness of a dowel plus 2 needles.  Then, at the end, you can just slide the dowel right in.

It's gorgeous!  You've inspired me to improve my crochet skills.

It's really cute!  I'm starting to rethink my opinions on this project...I think my wardrobe is badly in need of a Short 'n Sweet!

There's also a very similar scarf in Teva Durham's Loop-d-Loop, if you can find that at your local library.

ETA: d'oh!  Maybe I should read all of the posts before adding my two cents...

Even though it sounds like you have your problem mostly solved, I'll offer my 2 cents anyway.  If you have a local yarn shop (a place that specializes in fiber arts, not a craft store), you might go in and ask someone who works there to demonstrate the parts you're having problems with.  That way, you can have them pause at exactly the spots you need, plus they're there to diagnose whatever issues you may be having.

Very cute!  It makes me want to knit one.

LittleJoi, I love the way your yarn is doing the diagonal stripes.  So cool!
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Lindsay Lohan's cabled beret on: June 23, 2006 09:36:03 PM
I've been thinking about this pattern.  Isn't it just a slightly baggier version of the pithy hat with a different cable?  If you look closely, you can see that LL's hat is seamed (you can see where the two edges of the cabled pattern meet), but I think it would be easier to do in the round.  I think this hat is adorable, and I've been meaning to make a pithy hat, so I'll play around with the cable this weekend and see if I get something even moderately similar. 

P.S.  As for how to handle the decreases in the cable pattern, if you look at the pithy hat pattern you only decrease on the last two rows of the hat before you pull the yarn through. 

P.P.S.  If you want something with a less gathered top (you can see what I mean by gathered in the pithy hat link with Kiki's red hat), Elizabeth Zimmermann gives a guide for how to make a beret in Knitting Without Tears (I've sadly left my copy at school, 150 miles away, so I'll have to improvise).  For those of you who don't care to spend money (although I've found it's totally worth it--I love her wit!), check out your local library.

Wow...I love parenthetical comments.
