hmmm...where are you stuck? I am betting that the whole thing comes together in the end...there is a lot of picking up stitches in that hat!

I've finished my first 3 hats, all infant sized beanies. I'm pretty pleased with how they all turned out.

Lovely beanies, coulsenl; they look nice and warm!

Pleased to say the Max Hat finally did come together.  I was stuck on the part where you attach the I-cord brim to the body of the hat.  As it turns out, you have to fold the brim up -- and then roll it back a bit.

You're right, always, there is a lot of picking up stitches -- not one of my favorite things!  I also discovered I don't care for knitting "in-the-round" on two needles, and there's a ton of that on the ears, the crown points and the ear flaps.  My sister suggested I try using two circulars next time. 

This is going to the daughter of a friend of mine for her birthday, along with a copy of "Where The Wild Things Are"



And then, just because I've got sooooo many scraps to knit up....



I may end up keeping this one for me.  I should get at least one hat out of this adventure, don't you think?

Love the colors -- like candy sprinkles!

Good luck with the hat, always; it's a pretty cool pattern.  I'm looking forward to trying it again in a slightly larger (adult) version.  the designer seems to recommend needles 2 sizes smaller than the yarn suggests, to make it stiffer.  I started with the recommended #6 for Vanna's Choice yarn, altho' I admit I inadvertantly picked up #8 when I picked up the rown, and scaled back to #7's when I realized the error.  Can't really fault the designer for anything, after that!

I love the scraps hat. Such a good idea. I will have to eventually attempt it. I also like the baby beanies, and crown hat, and the bright striped hat. Ok I like everyones hats. Truly. Somehow others's always look nicer.

I am stuck on the last hat, also known as the husband hat. Lol. He keeps changing his mind even though he clearly saw the pattern picture and approved it beforehand. I cut out the inside tag of a shirt of his favorite soccer team and sewed it on the brim. He now wants a longer brim so apart it all goes.

Now *that's* a kindly knitter!  Especially since those look like tiny needles....

Thanks for the tips, yofi...I just found a beret pattern that my friend Limeriot sent to me that I want to cast on this weekend.  She also sent me some lovely grey wool to make it with...I think the needles might be size 2...Grin...she knows I love working with tiny needles the best...

loveofcuteness--you are very accommodating...I would have ripped off the tag and put it on a newly knit one...uh, no I wouldn't have...I just realized that just last week I ripped out a huge shawl that I knitted a few years ago because I wanted the yarn for something else...lol Grin

Last hat done. Now the Mr doesn't like the brim of the hat at all after all the trouble I went to making it longer. Lol. I am giving hats a rest for the rest of year. Ok maybe just one more.
