I got this pattern last night, cast on this morning and have 4 more decrease rows and the crown is fini  Cool

Your pattern is working up perfectly.  Yay for a well written pattern!

Short rows tomorrow...

Oooh, what yarn did you decide to use?

Let me know if you need any help with the short rows or anything.  I can't wait to see how it turns out!

I love the hat, and you're so cute as a blonde!  Smiley

Hehe, thanks!  My hair color seems to change quite often, but I always seem to go back to blonde!

Thanks!  I really want to make a springy/summery hat, maybe in something like Cascade Sierra?  I haven't decided yet.  I didn't really think I would want to make another one after how many times I had to rip out and redo the pattern, but I do!

25  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / "Hawkeye" Unisex Adult Cadet Hat --My favorite hat ever :) on: April 29, 2007 07:26:43 PM
I never thought I'd find it, the perfect hat!  After many tries and tweeks here is Hawkeye.  I am totally in love with it, and it seems to look good on anyone; I'm thrilled!  I need to make myself a summer version, ASAP!


My hat (above) is the Medium size, knit with Cestari 2-Ply Wool in "Blackberry."  I love the tweediness of this yarn.  It's a very natural yarn which supposedly still contains the natural lanolin oils in the wool.  It's a little rough and stiff feeling, compared to other wools I've used (plus there are still bits of hay in it), but a wash in Kookaburra softened it up some!  I still love the color and my hat looks great so it outweighs any gripes about the yarn Wink

Here is my husband wearing the Large size, it's knit with Cascade 220 superwash (Love this yarn) and it's very soft but a little less structured than the Cestari version.  I think it looks fantastic on him  Kiss

I hate to be a pain but at the moment I can't download PDF's. I'd really like to buy the pattern though! Do you think you could cut and paste it into a Word doc and send *that*?

I love it in teal!!!

Thanks!  Hippie9 I sent you a PM.

Oh my gosh those are gorgeous!  They looks so pretty wound up into cakes!  I see some socks in your future Wink  What do you think you make from the Cascade?

How's Vegas treating you lately?  Grin

I used Cascade 220 superwash, about 140 yds for the large size.  You're going to want a worsted weight yarn that knits up at 5 sts/inch (post blocking or washing if you plan on doing that).

Hope this info helps! Smiley

Yay!  I have a neice now!  She was born yesterday Wink

Also, for those of you curious about the Adult sized pattern, I wrote a little about it on my blog today:

We're still working on testing a couple of the sizes, but it looks good so far!

OMG!!!  LOVE IT Shocked  I have to have this hat.

Still checking back daily for adult pattern info....PLEASE!

Hehe we're working hard on the adult version right now, the first version turned out good but there were some things that needed changing for sure, I am testing out the rewritten pattern right now, so if all goes well we'll have it done by the end of the week!

How cute is that?Huh I love the colour and can't wait to see it on baby.I'm begging all of my knitting friends to make one for my new nephew!!!
I can't wait to see it on the new baby too!  Our sister went in to the hospital last night, so our new neice will be entering the world soon!  I can't contain my excitement!  Grin

Maybe I replied to this already, but I love that hat so much! And your daughter is so cute!
Thanks!  I think the same thing every day Smiley
