OK, I really want to do this hat.  I made a scarf for a friend out of rowan ribbon twist and have enough left to make the hat too.  Here's the thing... I really want to knit this in the round.  I read in SNBN that to change a sweater pattern to in the round, you just cast on two less for the front and two less for the back.  Using this logic, could I take the pattern and just cast on two less and knit it on circular needles instead?

well, actually, since this is so much smaller than a sweater, I'd advise having 1 or no less stitches.

Oh my goodness! I'm so shocked that she pulled the pattern off the site. I mean geez, it's not like that pattern was reinventing the wheel or something! It's actually one of the more basic hat patterns I've seen. And she was offering it free in the first place!

For a sweater, yes, you would cast on two fewer stitches for the front and two fewer stitches for the back. That's because each seam you stitch up (the side seams on a sweater) takes two stitches... kind of like the seam allowance when you're sewing.

When you are making a hat, there would only be one seam, so you could cast on two fewer stitches total.

Clear as mud?  Wink

I know what you mean, Gertie; I was thinking the same thing, and then I figured well, maybe its different if its your pattern and you're the designer...but yeah, big deal, eh? I think most of the time if patterns are posted on boards it is for the sake of helping someone out (like a couple pages back, in this thread). And it IS free...o well, she is making a point I suppose  Smiley

I just think it's funny b/c it's a variation of a common pattern...  oh well.  Smiley

I found this thread right after knitting this hat

which I made holding white Lamb's Pride worsted weight, white sparkly wool-ease and Patons Divine (very white and fuzzy) together on size 19 needles...it made such a nice smooshy, soft fabric, unfortunately its a bit large for the friend for whom it was made. Fortunately, i have a big head and it fits me fabulously! I think I need I need to refine my gauge-this thread really helps!
