Is the top as square as it looks in the photos?  I've been tempted to try my hand at this after I finish a few things, but the shaping at the top looks so awkward and it's kinda scaring me off, haha.

Mine turned out more beanie than square personally. Also, more tight fitted, which helped with the whole square head thing.

I finally got to start on my beanie on Christmas after finishing all the Christmas presents.  I LOVE this pattern.  So far I have completed 2 repeats and I am starting the third and final repeat.  I used the same yarn that she recommended and I like the yarn a lot!  Its teflon coated to repel water.  SO COOL!  Im making a b/w one for DH but Im lusting after a little pink and black one for myself. 

I will post pic tomorrow.

This is the first time I have ever used the same yarn and color that the pattern has suggested.  DH  wanted it in b/w just like the pic.  I think I will have this done pretty quick.

Its a lot of fun to make!

Wow! I am also going to try this once I get the yarn. Both versions look so good and it's time I made something for MYSELF! Shocking!

just started on this today. I just finished the first row of skulls. I'm still pretty new to knitting. started about a year ago. I must say nothing has annoyed me so much as provisional cast on. Angry If this weren't such a damn awsome hat I would have given up. Glad I stuck it out though, and now I have a new knitting skill Cheesy

I've never done a lining, and I was wondering about these instructions.  It says to knit the lining, and without binding off, to tack each stitch to the inside to the hat with a sharp needle, making sure stithces don't show on right side.  What is tacking?  Sewing with thread?  Can someone show a picture of the finished lining?  Thanks!

Thanks so much for all your kind comments on my hat!  All of the ones you're knitting look great!

I've never done a lining, and I was wondering about these instructions.  It says to knit the lining, and without binding off, to take each stitch to the inside to the hat with a sharp needle, making sure stithces don't show on right side.  What is tacking?  Sewing with thread?  Can someone show a picture of the finished lining?  Thanks!

"Tack" just means to sew it down.  When you finish knitting the lining and cut the yarn, leave a very long tail (say, 3x longer than the length of the part you need to sew down) and thread it through a tapestry needle.  Take each individual stitch and sew it down to the inside of the hat, just catching a bit of an outside stitch, not going all the way through to the outside of the hat, so your stitches don't show.  You can see the inside of my hat here- http://www.helloyarn.com/wp/?p=251.  It produces a nice, elastic edge.

The provisional cast-on doesn't have to be hard!  I crochet a chain (using a different color yarn) with a few extra stitches than I need for the pattern, then pick up as many stitches along the chain as I need for the pattern, using the yarn called for in the pattern, join into a round, then knit away.  You can undo that crochet chain and "zip" it away, like the top of a rice or dog food bag.
