My boyfriend is going mental for this hat but i'm not familiar with the type of yarn used(I'm in the UK). Does anyone know if it's a worsted weight yarn?  Going to try and substitute i think.

It's quite a thin/fine yarn.  I would guess a sock weight or maybe a bit thinner.  A worsted weight would produce a gauge that would be too big I think. 

The Sandnes website describes it as a "baby" yarn: here

I just wanted to chime in and agree with everyone on how awesome this is.  My husband is a huge Transformers fan and I was so excited to see this!  I just picked up the wool for his today Smiley  Thanks so much for sharing your genius!

It's things like that that make me wish that craftster was actually a shopping network that you could buy stuff from...that had like 10 of them. But it's the originality that makes it rad...and I must say, this is SO freaking rad!!
If I had a cleverness award for most clever and awesome, this would win the award hands down.

When I saw this i instantly forgot all about the pasta i was boiling- jumped upstairs to grab some yarn and knitting needles.  Smells a little smoky now but I've cast on.
Is this gauge right?  What weight yarn did you use?  I think the yarn I have is sportweight-ish.  (New to knitting).  But when I cast on 30 and knit a few rows it's like 10 inches long...rather than 4. 
Help! I must have this hat for my son and then one for my hubby too, maybe for my daughters and myself if i get REALLY good.

ACK!  I just went back to read ALL the replies (guess one should do that BEFORE casting on...) and I see that it's a 'baby weight'.  This is awful...I may have to leave my house and purchase more yarn...and wait like 20 extra minutes before starting this project.  Is there ANY way I can do this with a sport-weight yarn?  Will it look terrible?

what is the stitch/row gauge you are getting with the sport weight?  You may have to adjust your cast on.  I would take stitches out of the side panels (a multiple of 5).  It might affect your row gauge too though, which might make the hat too tall.  Unless you like your hats long, which some people might do. 

The names for the different weights of yarn are always really confusing to me.  I know the feeling of wanting to start NOW and wanting to work with what I have available...  What size needles are you using with the yarn you have? 

Also, my tension is always tighter when I knit in the round, so when my swatch (the rare times I attempt a swatch) is a bit loose, I know it will tighten up when I knit in the round.

Thank you thank you THANK YOU  for putting up the pattern!  When I first saw this post I ran to my mom's to borrow her knitting needles and got my first lesson in casting on and knitting and purling.  I have made two pairs of mittens now and one sock; so I think I'm ready to make this toque for the boy!   I am learning knitting just to make this!  My boy is going to FREAK!   This post ROCKS!!! Thank you so much!  Yay!  -Lisa
