love the hat-- what type of yarn did you use?

Mostly it's James C Brett Marble Chunky in Petrol/Russett/Brown Mix. It's my favourite yarn in the whole world.

It's reeeeeally soft and amazingly cheap.

There's a little bit of plain beige aran weight too.

when you increase by ten, are you saying to add a total of ten stitches in one row, but spaced out?

or are you saying to add ten stitches at a time all the way around?

kathleenalice--i think the chunky made a big difference; i used sport weight, and i don't think there's any way this hat will fit my noggin.   Shocked
are there any good ways to add to the band, or do i have to scrap it? (i'm over half done, so i don't want to start over!)

the first one! so you end up with an extra 10 stitches at the end of each row than you started with, but the increases are evenly spaced.

radiationbaby  - I'm not sure what to suggest. You could always insert a panel to make it big enough maybe?

i'll try the panel thing.  if that doesn't work, i can just give the hat to my sister.  she has a small head.

 Grin Just joined here looking for some Christmas gift projects - and I found this gem here!!!
I'm a basic knitter - I like 2 straight needles, I can knit, purl, increase and decrease... and probably not properly... BUT!!!! I managed this awesomely cute beret last night! Cheesy Cheesy

I tweaked the pattern slighty as I was running out of wool and I messed up and ended up with about 200 stitches to the original posters 110 recommendations - but dang!!! It looks awesome - even if I do say so myself!!

It's my first non-scarf related adventure - and I'm going to tackle a second one now!!!! Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Thanks for sharing! Cheesy
