I knit this up in about a half a day with plain old red heart yarn.
It does have some mistakes here and there(first experience with lace stitch).....But it is so cozy and I love love it!! Smiley

It's about 4 rows of moss stitch on size 8 straights then lace rib on size 11 straights to achieve the big holes I wanted!

Sorry about the pretty bad quality of pics had to take them with our vid cam.

Thanks epsilon Smiley
I'd be glad to post the pattern if you like, it's super easy!
And as far as it falling off, so far so good. I have been wearing it kinda like you would a snood and it has been staying in place. When worn like a hat it totally stays in place.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

Thanks!
And here ya go:


Materials: 1 skein Worsted weight yarn (I used red heart)
              US size 8 straight needles
              US size 10 or 11 straight needles
               (10 for smaller holes 11 for bigger)
              Yarn needle

CO 81 ST
Moss stitch for 4-6 rows(your preference here)
Row 1-K1, *P1,K1. Rep from * to end. Repeat this row for 4-6 rows.

Pick up one size 10 or 11 needle and begin knitting lace rib stitch right off of your size 8 needle knit to end of first row then pick up your other 10 or 11 needle and proceed with Lace rib stitch.

Lace rib stitch-Row 1-*P1, k3; rep from * to last st, p1.
                     Row 2- K1, *p1, yo, p2tog, k1; rep from * to end.
                     Row 3- Same as row 1
                     Row 4- Knit
                     Repeat these 4 rows till hat is desired length.

To finish: Decrease in knit stitch by k2tog till end of row for about 3 or 4 rows till 5 st or 3 st remains(this may vary)
Cut a tail and loop through yarn needle and thread through remaining stitches on needle pull off needle and pull thread tight then loop through and tie tight. Cut off remaining tail and sew up side using your preferred method of stitch here.


NOTE: This is my first attempt at writing a pattern so please bare with me and if anything does not make sense lemme know Smiley
Also this pattern has so much room to grow and so many different ways you could take it so please feel free!
