well it doesn't look like there are any special increases from what i can see, as it looks like the cables and ribs stay in pattern. but maybe you can do the first few rows with a smaller needle so that it hugs a bit better.  and i think the poof part is achieved with a loose fit and then decreasing all the stitches only in the last few rows.  kirsten dunst always looks good in those sort of poofy hats.  i think it must be her face/head shape.

I personally think that this hat is fairly close. She doesn't give the exact pattern I don't think, but try leaving a comment to see if she can help you out maybe?

I would love to have this pattern too, or to try to figure it out.  I'm still learning about how to figure out patterns and stuff.

I think I might knit a little elastic in the first few rows.  I can't figure what's holding this thing on her head.

Other than an army of stylists, of course!

I made my version of the Elizabethtown hat from the SnB nation book.
I simply knit the Cabled newsboy cap with wool-ease worsted weight using size 8 and 10-1/2 dpns but added 4 more rounds (1 more of the cable pattern if that makes sense) and left off the brim.

I'll upload a picture tomorrow - I don't have the camera right now but the doing it this way made it fantastically similar, I'm sure with some creative modification it could be even closer to the original.

if you use smaller needles (i used size Cool to knit the first few rows and then switch to larger (i used 10.5) it makes the brim snug enough that it'll stay on pretty well, even if you have super babyfine hair like mine. Smiley

i could be totally wrong, but it almost looks like it is folded under to create the puffyness. Does that make any sense??

My guess is Cast on 90 st. on size 7 needles. Work in 2x2 rib for about an inch or so, then switch to size 9s. The rest appears to be a 4x1 rib/cable. So *knit 5, purl 1, slip 2 to cable needle, knit two, knit two from cable needle, purl 1* and repeat from * around every 4th row, the others are k4p1 around. I THINK. I'll try it EVENTUALLY, after I finish my school spirit stuff (aka CoS Griffyndor scarf and matching striped mittens).
