Does anyone who's used this pattern have a rough estimate of how much yarn it takes?  I have about 150 yards of some handspun 2-ply that I think would work beautifully but I don't see any vague estimate of yardage in the pattern.

I think that for the pattern to look like the actual hat, you'd need to use a very thin yarn indeed - her hat is obviously machine knitted with something not too far from sewing thread!  Tricky......

 I don't know about quantities for 2-ply - sorry!

Argh, this hat is dealing me fits. I've frogged twice as well. The worst part is when I screw up and need to unknit, I can't figure out how to recreate my increased stitches (using the bar increase), since they fall apart when I unknit, so I have to start over.

Any suggestions for a different increase method or unknitting the bar increase?

I'm in the midst of doing the prototype for that pattern so I can get a picture up of it, and I'm about 1/2 thorugh a hank of peace fleece and have another 4" to go.  So, I think that 150 yards might be a bit too little.  I'm guessing I'll wind up using about 180-200 of the peace fleece.

I used a simple backwards loop for mine, the peace fleece hides the little hole that results well.

what is peace fleece?  is it like cotton fleece?

I don't know what kind of increase I used earlier when I was trying to figure out the pattern.

I was looking it up right when I read this message.  Could be wool.  It sounded like Cotton Fleece the Brown Sheep yarn.  Now i'm unsure what sort I should use.   Maybe I'll just stick with the wool-ease I had planned on using and see what happens.
