I am so thrilled! I decided to bite the bullet and make a hat. At first I tried circular needles but mine are too long so I decided to try the second best thing and make it on straights. It was so damn easy I couldn't believe it! I was finished in a few hours and I even modified the pattern and it still turned out great. Of course it helps to use incredible hand dyed/hand spun angora! Here you go...[/size]


Thanks for viewing and sharing any tips you may have, I even have enough left to make another but I think I will use smaller needles to close some of the gaps in the stitches.[/size]

I love your hat very cute! If you don't want to seam I'd suggest making a hat on DPNs. My first project on DPNs was a hat similiar to yours. I didn't have the right size circulars and I dislike seaming if I can avoid it, so I tried out the DPNs, it was really simple if you haven't tried it yet.

That looks so pretty on you! That color is perfect for you. Did you make up the pattern yourself? I always have the hardest time with DPNs. Too many pointy things to get all jumbled up.

First, I would like to say THANKS for the compliments!

In response to squirrelgirl (love the name BTW), DPNs are the devil and I am totally addicted to the color, but it isn't technically an original pattern. I have a very short attention span and so about 30 minutes into the hat (3 inches) I decided I didn't want it to fold over and stopped knitting in rib. I then subtracted the approximate fold over length from the total length (about 5.5 inches before decreasing) to get the distance need before decreasing then finished the pattern. Here is the link to the one I started with, it helps with the very basics!

Thanks for looking, S

It looks amazing! I'm so proud of you for conquering the DPNs. They aren't that scary right? Evil yes, scary no. I love what you did with the beautiful soft yarn too..  I'm thinking about doing a short row hat. I'm not friends with short rows yet. Smiley

Love the hat and the color on you is great! 

If your yarn is angora you may want to leave the hat a little loosely knit. Angora is so hot!  I once made my husband a wool blended with angora hat and it was too hot for him to wear it made his head sweat, and thats not a good thing when its super cold out.
