was the original (controversial) pattern like this: http://www.marthastewart.com/page.jhtml?&type=content&id=channel181746&site=&page=1/
I just knit one up this afternoon in Lion Landscapes yarn (Rose Garden- a lovely pink, red, browns, whites...)
it was super easy, and the hat is super cute.
I have a really big head, so I cast on 45 stitches but I didn't do enough extra rows, so it's too short to cover my ears :-(
Since it is my first hat, it shall be saved for posterity!  I have two more balls of the same yarn to do another one tomorrow! :-)

if your hat is too short, you could just knit up some easy ear flaps and sew them on the sides.  it's a great way to save too short hats!

Yes it was somewhat like that!

I hate, hate, hate, hate, hate hats!  Case(s) in point:



This one is two strands of Encore chunky held together and knit on US 13s.  My Goddaughter says that if I put a cord and tassel on the crown, she'll wear it.  Good thing, as it's way too small for an adult.



Use Wool Ease Thick and Quick and Fun Fur for this hideous thing.  I followed the Martha Stewart pattern for this one and even checked my gauge, still it came out very large.  My mother has a large head and she actually likes this one, so it's hers.  Of course, I think she likes it only because it's so @#$! cold outside, but ...  (Shrugs)

My personal thoughts?  That both are God awful.  They're slightly better than my first two attempts at hats (neither of which will even see daylight, let alone a camera) but still bad.  Done on a circ, dpns, straight needle, doesn't matter.  Hats elude me.

Sigh.   Undecided

haha Rombook, I like them both! What's wrong with them?

The second one reminds me of the "No hair day" hat on www.headhuggers.org ....made for a chemo patient, teeheehee, it always makes me gigle. I've always wanted to make that one for my grandma, she has breast cancer and has been going through chemo......still haven't gotten around to that.

Damned if I'm not going to try my hand at another one, similar to the beanie, and am going to keep trying until I get one right (Read: One that I would proudly wear in public.)  The beanie probably would have turned out just fine if I had knitted about 5 extra rows and bound off before closing the crown.  I am so going to knit myself a decent hat before, say, March.  I am!  I swear!  Tongue

I completed my first one hour hat last night! It's so satisfying. I used JoAnn's Sensations, a thick and thin variegated yarn, in Licorice, with size 15 needles. Straight needles. I'd like to knit it in the round, but I don't have big enough circular needles at this time.

Cute! It looks great in that yarn.

Has anyone tried knitting this in the round?

I haven't braved knitting in the round yet....still mastering the straight needles!! I should really give it a try though, so much cute stuff I find calls for round or double points.
