those are all great hats! i wish i had looked at this thread more closely before i started making one for my daughter. i love it and she loves it, but it is too short!  Embarrassed
it doesn't cover her little ears!
here is a picture anyway, and mabe later i'll try to get another one of her modeling it. (it matches the mittens i made for her from weekend knitting!...she loves purple)


i loved making it also, and i am now a cable addict...i am working on a sweater vest for my son.
Or maybe knit some earflaps? that might look wonky, but if yuo knit them with cords, you could tie it on....I dont know what i'm thinking, ignore me

thanks, joygoddess and littleone...
i think those are both really good suggestions. i will definitely try something...because now she doesn't want to wear it - she chooses the one my friend's mother made for her that covers her ears! the horror!

NOOOOOOOOOOO! Rejection, it's a sad thing.....it happens, but when there is something you can do to prevent it, I say, do it Smiley Good luck!

Finished mine in one day--start to finish maybe 6 hours? Made it in a nice charcoal with Wool-Ease, and I think it could become my standard hat-for-a-gift pattern, since it was so easy and fun to knit--plus it looks really impressive and harder than it is!

I think this hat is so cute and everyone who has posted pictures did such a great job!

I'm thinking of making it, but have never used double pointed needles and I'm kind of intimidated by the whole idea - any advice on how easy it is to use them?

Thanks!

the pattern calls for US 7 (4.5 mm) and US 8 (5 mm) 16" (40 cm) circular needles, and a set of US 8 dpns - but really, it depends on the yarn you select and your own tension when you are knitting.

Yea! I finally got around to finishing a hat for my hubby. He loves it. I started out with LB Woolease, but it was making my hands red, so I frogged and did it in Cascade 220. I forget the color, but it's like a dark grey/slate/charcoal color. I think I'm going to make another for me and do a pom pom, maybe not. I've got a varigated teal cascade I think it would look good in. All in all, I'm very pleased. This was my first time doing cables and it wasn't nearly as difficult as I was afraid it was going to be. Now I'm kicking my butt for not doing this a lot sooner! Thanks to whoever mentioned doing an extra cable too, you saved me from having to frog it and re-do!

 I had to take pics as soon as I finished and hubby was playing his new video game and didn't want to be bothered. I told him that he nagged me long enough to make him one that he was going to let me take a picture of him in it. Then just a close up, and the third is one of my doggie's being tortured by dh. She must have liked it since she kept it on for a minute or so (that's a long time for her)!

This is my first time posting pics, so I hope they come out!

I made the basic cable hat for my grandma's birthday in November.  She lives in northern California, so it gets cold there.  I used some navy Cascade 220 yarn, and I used 9 cables instead of 8 and also added 1 or 2 extra cable repeats.  This made the hat fit and it covered her ears in the end.

I really like that color blue!!! Awesome job! What a lucky grandma...  Grin

I should knit something soon with this Cascade 220 yarn everyone seems to love so much... I feel like I'm missing out on something.
