Oh, it looks great!  I too love this pattern!  Have made many, but I loved the brown sheep prairie silk! What did you use?  I love the colors.

I nosed about your blog and found pictures!! The hat is beautiful. i really want to make one, but have just one question, about the length...someone on the LJ knitting community said that they made the hat and it turned out too short, and wouldn't fit over their forehead. You don't look like you've got this problem, but just wondering, incase you made some mods here and there.....

anyway - the hat is beautiful, and the matching neckwarmer on your blog is really nice, too. What does that look like on? *hint*

thanks (belatedly, to all others) for the compliments!

hi nushybum Smiley
i didn't make any modifications with the hat, and my head is pretty average, roughly 21/22 inches around. it does tend to want to slip off, so i'm thinking of extending the ribbing by picking up stitches around the bottom. i used a handspun handpainted yarn i bought off ebay, and its weight was heavy worsted (rather than worsted) so perhaps that made it bigger... i had another person actually make me one of those for a hat with caron simply soft though, and it is way bigger than mine and comes down past my ears...

i've learned my lesson with cable hats though... i just made this one:

and it's also a tad too small and tends to want to slip off. so maybe if i had given it one more braid it would have done the trick...

i'll try to get the whole setup in a pic (neckwarmer and hat Smiley
