1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Keri Russell Sundance Hat on: February 25, 2007 04:38:05 PM
thing is with the chunky yarn and the ribbing it was stiff... So I was worried if I just kept knitting it would stick straight up on my head Smiley

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.

weeeelllllll........ I just finished it, but it's not nearly what I was trying to make Wink






I'm going to try another one top down instead.. hopefully I can shape it a little better

I was using these needles

I love the yarn you're using - it looks gorgeous!  what kind is it?

Whoops, I meant to put that in the post Smiley
it's from Elann, Peruvian Collection - Highland Chunky

Looks like the colour I'm using isn't available right now.

Well I started my Keri Russell hat on Tues.

Looks like I'm going to have to try another, so next one I'll try top down with big needles in stockinette stitch

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'll just have to space them differently I think.
If I put in stitch marker of where I want to decrese then I do right slanting decrease on one side of the marker and left slanting decrease on the the other side.  That way I keep two stitches together as a knit and the next two together as a purl.
That probably doesn't make any sense to anyone but myself Smiley

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

thanks for the tip!  I'll go post this there now.

what if I cast on with a smaller needle, then knit a row or two & switch to a larger needle?  Would that stop the roll?
