I was admiring this hat while watching previews for the upcoming Elizabethtown starring Kirsten Dunst.  Would anyone here know of a similar pattern for a hat like this or have suggestions on how to make one?


The red hat is the one I'm talking about.

but you could also try a beanie pattern but just make it loose fitting, my mom crocheted one and it looks similar to that one you posted.

Hmmm, here's how I would attempt it:
1) measure head circumpherence
2) cast on tightly with a small needle just enough to fit your head.
3) join round and knit 1 or 2 rows in pattern of choice
4) switch to needle 1-3 sizes larger and knit a tube to desired length
5) cut yarn, thread through all stitches and cinch up tight and weave in end.

I'm not absolutely sure it would work (I'm especially not sure about the beginning).  I'm pretty sure that's how you'd finish it off.  the key is that you want the hat to be loose on your head, but snug at the brim (that's why I have you switch needle sizes).  

Good luck!

I'm looking for this hat too, I love it.  Has any one tried melodomi's suggestion?  Here are some more pics for different views:

Hmmm, maybe some increases are needed?

Look!  I'm on the internets!:

Hmm, I think I'm going to try it using an increase. It also looks like it is in a ribbed pattern after the brim, maybe 5k then 5 alternating kp?

I'll let you guys know if I figure anything out!

The more publicity that's coming out, the more close-up pictures I see of the hat. It's got some cabling up the sides (ungh) and a ribbed brim.  The official website doesn't have the close up, but it's a publicity shot of her and Orlando with their heads against each other. You can really tell what the hat looks like.  It kind of has a tam-o-shanter thing going on, but it doesn't seem all that poofy. hmm.  Best of luck. I'm not touching anything with cableing involved right now.

A few rows of k1 p1 rib on relatively small needles would make the band nice and snug. Then switch to larger needles and do an inc row would make it nice and big after the ribbing. (If it would ruin the look of the hat, maybe you could fold the band so that it's inside the hat?)

This is probably useless. I'm just brainstorming here.

I made a hat last year that turned out a lot like that because it was too big, and I really wanted to wear it, so I just folded the band and sewed it. (Yeah, I know. Roll Eyes) But I'm sure there's a proper knitting way to get that effect.

There is a remarkably similar looking hat on the cover of Lopi Pattern book #24. A little chunkier, but it might give you some ideas. Go to this website and scroll down a bit to see the pattern book.

Ok if you look to the right there is an ad for the movie.  If you go to photos and click #7 there is a great shot of the hat.  Sorry... that is the best way I fould find to get you to the picture  Undecided
