Sounds like a great stash buster!  I'm in(and I do love hats too!)  Give me something quick and easy to do in between swaps and bigger projects.  Wheee!

ok, i'm in.
i have never used a pattern for yarn work, i just did whatever it was that grandma said to do and i ended up with something great.
she's gone now though and i haven't picked up a hook or needles since then. in fact, i can't even Find her crochet hooks anywhere, wonder what i did with them? the knitting needle book is still around and full of every size there is but no hooks. huh.

oh well, i went out and bought one ball of yarn and three hooks, sizes 4, 5, and 6 and now i want to make this hat:

can i do it with what i've got?
also, i have zero idea how to read a pattern so i'm breaking out grandma's books to check out what all the letters mean. i might get stuck and i kinda think i might end up with something wonky in a teeny, tiny size. well, my friends are having a baby so... this yarn isn't very soft though...

well the pattern calls for a K hook, that would be a 7 in metric.
tell me what type of yarn you have?

worsted weight should work fine... use your biggest hook (i think you said you had a J/6) if you don't have a tight gauge it should be fine because it will stretch some. or you could always add in a few extra increases to make it wider around

so i decided to ransack the house looking for those hooks and of course, huge box of yarn tucked away in the closet.
still no hooks though. well, one, exactly the same size as the one i just bought. weird.

that pattern book? i need some help. i have a friend with a yarn shop downtown so i'll go bug her and save the fun pictures for you! yeah!

I'm really eager to start on the September one - it's gorgeous.  I found some old yarn my mom had and I'm not sure if it's the right kind.  Is 'shetland chunky' thicker than 'worsted weight'?  Or is it still ok to use & I won't end up with a hat 3 times bigger than my head?

i would have to see it to know for sure but just by the word 'chunky' it sounds bigger. Worsted weight is basically the standard size, the yarn monkeythumb posted up there is worsted weight.
Depending on how big the yarn is you can cut back on the increasing rounds which will help keep it from being really big at the widest part or deacrease a few extra rounds which will make it a larger size but the decreases will bring it in enough to fit your head.

I just printed out the pattern for the September hat and I'm ready to get started! This is going to be a great way for me to use up some of my yarn stash Smiley
