Over the past few weeks, I've finished two hats, one from SnB and one from SnB Nation. Time to share!  Cheesy Apologies, the images are a little big.

This is my kitty hat, knit with superwash Merino in a rosy pink. I'd like to eventually do another one, as I messed up the i-cords a bit and the ears are supertiny. I'd love to do a deep violet one, similar to the book.


The second one is the Headline News cap from SnB Nation. I had a big ball of slate blue acrylic that I didn't know what to do with, so I tried it on for size with this cap. Turned out a tad big, but it's supercomfy and although I just finished it yesterday, I've already gotten compliments on it.  Smiley


That's all!   Grin

I saw your kitty hat on the craftster photo hosting site, and had to find out more, it's beautiful!  Was it difficult to make?  How long did it take you and what kind of yarn did you use?   Grin

The yarn you used for the Kittyville hat looks like Lion Brand Jiffy yarn in plum...I used the same yarn for a standard ski hat, my first knitted on dpns.

Great hats! Did you use the elastic on the Newsboy hat? I am having a hard time finding it and don't want to order it online and pay double the cost of the item for shipping.

Mackster- love the colour choices! I never wear my kittyville or newsboy hates neary enough
 
Lynn- if you knit using dpns you only need siize 5mm & 6.5mm (i think?) dont waste your money on all the circs, youll have to change to dpns to do the top anyway

bkknits29- i didnt use elastic and it worked fine, the brim is knitted on smaller needles so it naturall fits

Thanks for the compliments, everyone!  Cheesy

Porfiry and rabideloise, I was lucky enough to find pretty much the exact yarn listed in the book, superwash 100% merino wool. They were low on shipment at my LYS that day, and had little supply of the yarn, so I settled with the rosy pink colour. porfiry, the hat wasn't difficult at all. I was afraid of making cables for the first time, but they're super-easy.

Lynn, yeah, they are pretty much all required.  Embarrassed I had some size 9 dpns that I used for the top hat shaping(and what poordumbbird said is right, you CAN use dpns all the way through if you wish), but yes, there's no real way around it otherwise that I could find out. If I'm wrong, prove me wrong!  Cheesy

bkknits29, I didn't use any elastic. The bit of ribbing at the rim of the hat acts as a bit of an elastic, all the elastic you need. The only extra thing I needed was the plastic mesh to give the brim a bit of stiffness(but that's included in the pattern materials in the book).

Thanks again! I love making hats.  Cheesy
