Ive seen these before, and they were nice enough, but something about yours makes me want to go out right now and get the pattern and the yarn. I need this hat  Cheesy Its a shame its felted too small, but if it looks that good on teddy, Im sure any kid can rock it

Hey everyone, thanks for the words,

 When I do get a chance I'll write up as good a pattern as I can,  if anyone cares. Ive just started another one for a swap partner of mine, so I can take better notes this time around.

Sewincbm, I didnt do any shaping. Once I was done with the ribbing I increased (I kinda forget how much, hence trying again and keeping better notes) and then started in stitch pattern until I felt it was what I was going for (I maintain I had no idea what this hat was actually going to be) then I started decreasing a tad in pattern, just without the yarnovers (so it would actually decrease) and that was that. Make sense?  Roll Eyes  What goes on in my head isnt always what people hear or see  Cheesy so if anyone has any other questions feel free.  Grin

24  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My newest creation in stashbusting. *Instructions added* on: February 28, 2008 04:12:28 PM
Made on size 4 1/2 needles using sirdar snuggly from a frogged razor cami.  I didnt know what this was going to be, I just kinda cast on, and let it become what it wanted. It is my new favorite among my knitted items. Maybe its crappy,  Roll Eyes  but Im pleased  Cheesy

With hair down:




Hair up (Would make a decent dread hat, or at least good for bad hair days  Grin




Being modeled my my cooking pot (I didnt feel I could get the right angle of the back while on me)


And a close up of the stitch definition:   Not sure if its called anything in particular ; Rnd 1 Knit 1, yo, knit 2og
                                                                                                                 Rnd 2 yo, knit 2 tog, knit 1


Sorry for the abundance of pics 


I havnt finished the second hat yet, but I figured Id forget that I said Id post the pattern, so I'll give you my half asses attempt and make changes if the proper notes actually ever get finished in this century  Roll Eyes   Thats what happens when life catches up to you, anyhoo,

I cast on 102 st. using sirdar snuggly and size 4 1/2 needles
Worked in 1X1 rib for 2 1/2 almost 3 inches
The next row I increased, and this is where Im lost, I started to inc. every 10th st. and then a quarter way in the round I realized it wouldnt be enough, so I switched to inc. every 5 stitch. (As long as at the end you have enough to work in pattern.)
I knit 3 rounds of stockinette and then started to work in pattern.
Pattern: Round 1 *Knit 1, YO, knit 2tog*  Repeat for the round
            Round 2  Knit
            Round 3  *YO, Knit 2tog, Knit 1* Repeat for round
            Round 4 Knit
Repeat these 4 rounds until desired length is reached, I knit these 4 rounds 16 times, then I decreased.

Round 1  knit 1, knit 2 tog,
Round 2    knit
Round 3   knit 2 tog, knit 1
Round 4    knit

And that was that. Any questions or criticisms of my pathetic attempt at explaining my self let me know  Grin

Ahhh!  So so so so CUTE!   As a knitter I am incredibly jealous of the ami projects that crocheters seem to be so good at it.   I love them both! Great job.
