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

I think the decreasing would actually begin earlier, but be more gradual than your typical hat to get a more rounded shape (most hats are knit straight for most of the bottom, then get sharply decreased - compare a plain beanie pattern).

hmmm... I think you might be right... So instead of steadily decreasing (i.e. k7,k2tog then k6, ktog) I'll decrease then knit a round, decrease then knit a round etc.?

I think spacing the decreases further part (i.e. less decreases per round) might work too.

if it were handknit... i'm thinking it might be knit toip down. then cast off tightly so it doesn't roll? idk...

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?

I just joined the slouch-a-long...it's in among the other knitalongs.  there's some links to slouchy hat patterns, and we'll all be making them together, so that might be a good place to generate more ideas.  just a suggestion!
