I can't figure what's holding this thing on her head.
Other than an army of stylists, of course!

hahaha! i totally agree! i too have been admiring this hat from all the commercials, however i have the *teeniest* head, and so most hats tend to slide off it unless i have em pulled down to almost touching my eyebrows! seriously, having a pea-head sucks!

but i'm curious to see someone finally tackle this project, so that i can suss out whether or not it might be worth attempting to scale it down for my mini-melon!

looks like it!!  just substitute a cable pattern instead of the purse stitch and you've got it.  I just bought some LB microspun to try this out today.
I plan on doing a p1,k1,p1,k1,p1 rib then a 4 or 6 stitch cable.  We'll see!  Wish me luck  Kiss

Its kinda funny that this hat  is from spiderman 2... very similar to the Elizabethtown hat.  Does she have it in her contract that she must be able to wear a "pithy hat" in all of her movies or what??

I wish I had seen this post last night.  I started on a version of this hat...I think I may have to frog it because my cables are looking more stretched than they should.  Increases should fix that I think...
I've never tried to figure out a pattern before, this is more fun that I expected.

Ok... here's what I have so far...
I am using Lion Brand Microspun in cherry red.  I started with size 3 needles, and CO 110 sts.  K 4 rounds, then did an increase round k1, m1 around.  Then switched to size 5's.  From there:
Rows 1,2, 4,5,6 [p1,k1,p1,k1,p1,k4]
Row 3 [p1,l1,p1,k1,p1 sl2 to cn and hold to back, k2, k2 from cn]

I havent had much time to work on it cuz its midterm week coming up, but thats what I've got so far.  What do you all think?  any suggestions??  I would kinda like the cables to be smaller, but this works.  And I'm not sure I like how the first 4 rows roll up at the bottom.

slimisaw--it looks good.  I used 2x2 ribbing at the bottom and it hasn't rolled.  I have also started and restarted mine I think I'm on my third time now.  I've only made it to the cables once...I think after I increase I'm going to do a 6x3 rib and then every 5th or 6th row a cable twist.  I think....now that I look at the picture again I think there are more little ribs between each cable vertically....I don't know.

I also don't know how to make the cables smaller.  I'm using size 7 and 9 needles and Lion Brand Wool-ease.  I think yours looks good though.

I love this hat!

It reminds me of this:

http://www.classic-yarns.co.uk/productexd.asp/_ctrl/c/plid/215/cid/7/scid/0/tid/0/_Lpage/1/id/

but then when I saw this version of the Coast hat made up:

http://www.girliscrafty.com/archives/000073.html

I don't like it nearly as much as the picture... hmm.

I am going to wait until someone else has finished it until I give it a go.  No shame in that.

yeah, that looks sort of like it...but a little tighter on the head like...that's what it looks like to me.  I thought I would wait until someone else figured it out but I got impatient and decided to do it on my own.  Smiley

too funny, I was trying to figure out why I was suddenly getting all these hits from craftster!!  I think my pithy hat pattern would work, but instead of the purse stitch, substitute with p1, k1, p1, k1, p1 (ribbing with purls next to the cable so it stands out) and a 3 stitch cable so that it fits into the 72 stitches Smiley

And I'm jealous of how good she looks in hats like this.  I love them and they make my head look like someone plopped a bowling ball cover on top of it :p

okay...do you mean 72 stitches after the increases or 72 stitches excluding the ones being done into a cable (don't know how else to word it)?  I don't think what I have figured out is really working so I think I'm going to go with smaller needles and your instructions.
