Hi everyone!  This is my first knitting post.  I  took up knitting recently and have been getting quite carried away with it!  This is my first attempt at a hat! I don't know if you've seen Bridget Jones 2,but there's a scene where she is skiing and is wearing a wolly hat with two bobbles.  My friend (who's modelling the hat!) had been wanting a hat like that since she saw the film, so I made it for her birthday!  Cheesy

If I remember correctly, Yahoo! doesn't allow you to hotlink. Sad But you could try ImageShack, PhotoBucket or Flickr or one of those zillion other image hosting sites on the net. Smiley

Thanx!  I didn't use a pattern, but it's REALLY easy to make.  You just knit in the round (I used 4mm circular needles).  Knit about 5cm in seed stitch and then about 25-30cm in stockinette stitch.  Then you just bind it off (withot decreasing any stitches), which leaves you with the two points at the top.  And then you just attach a bobble to each point.  Easy peasy!  Smiley

Ok what am I missing in those instructions...you knit in the round...at the desired length you bind off...without decreasing...but I don't see how you could end up with two points...in my mind all I see is a tube...what am I not getting?

Ok I thought about it some more...after casting off, you sew the seam across the top, and as long as it is, the two ends hang down like points that you put the pompons on...right?  That makes sense...how many sts did you cast on and is it stretchy enough to fit a man or a woman either one?

I've done a similar hat and done the three needle bind off at the top.  That way, I don't have to sew up a seam!  I hate sewing so any chance I get to avoid sewing, I use it.

Great job, Pinkygirl, BTW!

Yeah -Cougar1, that's exactly how I did it. Sorry, my explanation wasn't very clear!  I cast on 84 stitches. It's pretty stretchy and would probably fit a man comfortably.  For a girl I'd say 74 stitches would do.  I only did 84 stitches on my friend's hast because she wanted it loose.  Having said that, the advantage of casting on 84 stitches for a girl is that because it's a bit looser, it doesn't give you that 'hat hair' effect, you know? hehe  Grin

Thank you so much.  I just finished up another hat as an extra gift to have on hand (cause I have a feeling we are going to get extra company this weekend) and was itching to do another (and also since I just learned to work in round I am so tickled with it I can't seem to get enough of doing it LOL).  I used this pattern to make it:
