1  Re: Keri Russell Sundance Hat in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by elbow in the spine on: February 24, 2007 08:53:50 AM
First attempt done... essentially a failure Smiley
It's not nearly as slouchy, and I think this also proves that her hat is stockinette





So now I just need to learn how to knit a hat top down.

I've started my attempt at the Keri Russell hat



I cast on 88 stitches, then increased every 4th stitch for a total of 110.  Then I started working the 1x1 rib.

  Unfortunately now that I've knit enough to try it on a little it still seems snug.  So I think I need to increase more or cast on more next attempt.  But rather than frog at this point I'm just going to try to finish it, at least to get a handle on how the decreases will work.  Then I'll try again with more stitches for a slouchier effect.  I figure I have enough stash to knit through anyway Wink

I'd love to join... I'm looking to make a hat like Keri Russell was wearing at Sundance.
My original post is here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=153618.0

and here are a couple more pictures:




Now all I need is someone to help me figure out how to knit it Smiley

5  Keri Russell Sundance Hat in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by elbow in the spine on: February 19, 2007 04:35:05 PM
So I love, love, love Keri Russell's hat.




It looks really simple.  I'm assuming I just cast on a larger amount than "normal" and then work in 1x1 rib for about 10 inches?  Then probably k2tog for a more rapid decrease than a regular cap?

Basically I'm looking for a little confirmation before I delve in  Grin

6  easy flat stocking pattern in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by elbow in the spine on: December 06, 2005 10:38:43 AM
Okay, I feel like this should be on the boards somewhere, but I've searched and searched and cannot find what I'm looking for.  I was hoping to knit a stocking, just two flat pieces and sew them together, no turning of heels or DPNs or what-have-yous  Grin
something along these lines:


I can figure out the striping, letters or whatever I need for within the pattern, I just don't know how to make the shape?  can anyone help me out, or point me in the right direction?
thanks!

my friend at work dressed up like this :


except instead of paying the 900 some odd dollars they're charging for that he made his own.  He bought a gorilla head and attached fun fur to his clothes then made the cage out of piping from home depot.  Said it cost him about $30.

let's see... so you have a seam down either side and then an open part... take the middle of each side of the open parts and pull in opposite directions, this means the two seams are now lined up touching, sew across there... i think that probably sounds more confusing, rather than less confusing, but maybe it helps?

here's some pics to help (maybe)

so you should have something that looks like this (the white part are the seams)


then just hold where the red dot is (on either side) and pull them away from each other and then you have a little line
where the dot is will be the start and end of the line


this is why i don't write tutorials myself  Grin
