I made this hat too. It was so quick and turned out nice. I used the Lion Brand Thick N Quick yarn and size 17 needles. It came out a little bigger than yours, but it's perfect for someone with lots of hair. Plus I like that style of hat big. I think the next one I make, I'll use smaller needles.  I'll post a picture of mine when I get home. Smiley

I finished mine in about 2 hours, it's way bulkier than yours Gertie, but in a funky kinda way. I used Light N Lofty yarn in this garnet red/black color. I love it, I dropped and picked up a stitch on one of the last rows by accident so I have some struggling toward the end but I made it work. I'm going to whip up a black one tonight with some less floofy yarn and see what happens. I also used size 17s. I will post a crappy picture with my crappy webcam when I get home.

I love this hat! I made one last night for my friend Stephanie. Now I just have to make her a mini-scarf to match, and I'm done with one more present! I will post pictures when I finish the scarf.

P.S. This hat took me nearly three hours, because I am a slug-slow knittress and also because somehow I managed to skip the step where you do 12 rows of stockinette. I had to remove all those stitches and start from (nearly) scratch. Agh!

This is a ramshakle hat, but I love it because it's my FIRST hat ever. The next one I make will look better, and this time I swear I will remember to COUNT the damned rows. Smiley

I made one, 3 yarns held together, royal blue, light blue, and a white with sparklies, It looks really cute and was SOOO easy! I made a scarf to match it for my sister. The hat was a tad bit loose, but comfy loose, not like, its gonna fall of my head if I move at all loose. Maybe Next time I'll take a row or two out? ......I guess I could use smaller needles...but yeah, maybe I'm just knitting to loosely. Anyways, that's not the point, it turned out fine and I love it! Thanks a whole lot for the link to the pattern! Off to make more for easy Christmas gifts!

OH, that hat is awesome! And thank you for posting the link-- I get a lot of questions concerning "What can I make with 80 yards of your super bulky wool?", and now I can refer them to this pattern!

I love this pattern!! I have yet to use circular needles so I was looking for a straight needle hat to make. I made 5 of them as Christmas presents already! I just used the Wool-ease thick and quick and sz. 17 needles and they turned out great. I wove ribbon through the bottom around the base and tied it in a bow on a couple - i saw this idea in a different thread that i can't find now...  Thanks for the pattern!

i made this hat with what i had on hand....size 10.5 needles and 3 strands of plymouth encore worsted held together....it came out pixie size and i learned my first gauge lesson!!

but reading all these positive remarks i may just have to try it again  Smiley  did all of you use straights or circs? the one thing i didn't like was that the hat is seamed in the back...
