The seed stitch makes that hat. The garter one looks too plain.

Super Bulky...hmmm. I want to make it out of Malabrigo. If I hold two worsteds together, does anyone think I'd be able to make it?

I like your version a LOT better.  And I love the colour!  (I'm a sucker for anything orange.)

i just made one out of bernat softee chunky, and plan to make more. the majority of my yarn stash is worsted, and i considered making the future ones with two strands together. now that i see someone else is considering the idea as well, i say we GO FOR IT!

Can I just say that you are fabu? Okay! You are! It feels so good to see something really really cute and wanting it so bad, looking at the price and then say "Oh I can make that!" Especially when you are in the store and everyone can hear you. That is the best! Is that horrible? Whatever! I don't care...we all should be proud that we are able to do this. YAY for knitting...and all other crafts!

It's been written before, but I can't stretch that enough: Yours looks a lot better than the original!

If you care to look at all of my work:
yep, its like that

Fantastic hat, and the seed stitch is much better then the garter stitch!

Thanks so much, for posting the pattern for your lovely hat.  Grin
But I have a question, for whomever has made this lovely hat.
Would you happen to know the gauge/tension, that you're supposed to have?
Sorry but I'm at a loss without knowing what the gauge/tension, is supposed to be.   Roll Eyes

On the stockinette portion of the hat I got 3 sts and 4 rows per inch (on US 10.5 needles). I used a super bulky weight yarn, so it makes a fairly thick material.

Once again, thanks for all the compliments everyone!  Smiley

Thanks a lot for your help with the gauge metaphysical_muse.  Smiley
Would you happen to know what the suggested needle size was, on the original yarn wrapper?
That would help me to know, which of my yarns would work best. I have a few bulky, and super bulky skeins lying around.

For those of you who would like to try this using a worsted weight yarn, I'd love to do the same.  As most of my huge piles of yarn, are worsted weight. Soooooo, I'd love to use up as much of it as I can.
I'd love to know if anybody has made this hat using worsted weight, Red Heart acrylic yarn (Super Saver, or Comfort).
If so how many strands did you need to knit with, in order to get the proper gauge?
And what size needles did you need to use, in order to get the proper gauge?     Undecided

Thanks to whomever can help me out in figuring out how to make this wonderful hat, using up my worsted weight Red Heart acrylic yarn.   Roll Eyes
