A few weeks ago, I posted about one of David Beckham's knit hats (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=172850.0).  I decided to try drafting my own pattern, and this is what came of the first attempt:


I need to enlarge the gauge to achieve the slouchiness and maybe fill in more cabling (cramped fingers -- arrrg!), but I think I found the right yarn, so I'm excited.  It's also the first pattern I've ever tried to write out.  I got a little lazy keeping track of it all, especially because at the end I went back and redid it so it wouldn't come to such a point. 

Please don't be shy with suggestions about either the pattern so far, or how to achieve the look more effectively.  You can also reach me check my blog entry for others' tips: http://everythingatonce.wordpress.com/2007/06/08/slouched-cable-hat-v10/. Thank youuuu!

I don't want to think about winter hats - but maybe if Beckham is wearing one ... hmmm.

What is an "invisible purl"?
Third line down in your pattern:
"*Inc 1 (with invisible purl), p3, inc 1(p), k3 rep from * to end of row."

Is it picking up the thread bar before (and below) the next stitch?

Thanks for this,
Janey
