And I suppose to carry these stitch markers over as I have with the one I already have on there or is it suppose to stay where I leave it?
No questions are stupid on Craftster  Wink Actually many beginners have asked the same thing, and yes, you are supposed to carry the stitch markers with you as you go, so you will know when to decrease Smiley

and wootwoot: this was my first non-scarf-project, and I didn't think it was that difficult. The pattern is pretty easy to read. I think hats are supposed to be the easiest non-rectangle projects. And the good thing is that the results look so professional!!

Good luck, both of you!!

I have some beautiful yarn (merino, silk blend) for this project but I can't find damn 16" 4.5mm needles anywhere in my area! damn.

I suppose this is an excuse to do some net shopping and throw in a few extra goodies too Wink

Everyone's hats look gorgeous.  Cheesy

I just finished the Kitty hat, the Kittyville.com version, which may or may not be the same as the one in the book (the results look pretty similar)

I found this wonderful soft, floofy, eyelash-y type of nylon wool (Patons Allure), that felt soft enough to wear on my face.  But its a lot thicker than the worsted in the pattern, so I ended up recalculating the whole pattern for a bulky wool.  Let me know if anyone is interested in what the new directions are, and I could post my conversions.

I'm really happy with how it turned out, this is the first knitting project in a whole bunch of years, and I have never made a hat before!

This wool is, BY FAR, the hardest stuff I have ever used.  All the stitches fuzz together, and it is impossible to count them.  I actually kind of estimated what my gauge was cause I couldn't accurately tell where the stitches were.  I relied heavily on stitch markers - i even used them to cast on, putting one on every 10 stitches, cause once the stitches were on the needle, i couldn't go back and count cause they would dissappear.  One ear always flops, but I thnk its kinda cute

Ok, the picture I tried posting shows up insanely large no matter how I resize it, so I have just posted a link instead til I figure this out (yeah, first picture post!)

Update: finally figured out how to get it small enough to view nicely!  Yay helpful search tool.

I'm more of a non-pattern reader, so to try this hat out, I decided to make one for a doll:




And then, it inspired me to make a little kitty-themed scarf for the doll as well:




Which, of course led me to want a set in my size as well. Tongue

Ooh... my first post on Craftster...

I just finished my Kitty Hat today.  It was a present for my sister, and she likes bright colors, so I used Patons Classic Merino dyed orange and pink with Kool Aid (which was another thing I read about in the book that I wanted to try).  When I wrapped the yarn into a hank, I think I tried to do too much at the same time and the dye didn't get into some of the places where the hank was tied, so I ended up with some white spots.  I was a little worried about that, but when I knit it up, I thought it looked pretty neat, kinda like one of our orange tabby cats.  Here's the pic of the final product:

Angelzen, I love the hat in that color! Very tabby. Smiley  If I were ever going to make another one, I'd do color (mine's black).

Oh. my. god. I don't know if anyone will actually do this... but...

Would anyone be willing to make this for me? I'd definately pay for one. The only way I'd be able to get one otherwise would be if I took up knitting which definately won't happen ( as I'm already engrossed in several sewing and crocheting projects (and I hope to take up quilting and cross stitching soon)).

It's debatable when I'll have funds available (that almost rhymes), but if someone would be willing, we could possibly work something out.
