The pattren is in Stich n' Bitch Nation
Was it hard to do the lid?

No Actually because the pattren has well written instrutions about making the brim.

way cool.  It is my next project to do.  Any good tips?
Just make sure when you do the M1 you knit the stich throught the back loop or else you get little holes.
i am glad you all like it. It is such a fun pattren!  Grin

I love it.  This has been on my list since I've gotten the book.  I do have some Cascade 220 too, perhaps I'll actually make it now.

Ok I'm back.  I had to pull the pattern out.  Hopefully you can help me out with some of these abbreviations.  What does c6b mean?  I know it has something to do with the cable.

And, what does sm mean?

If you could help, I would sooooo appreciate it.

c6b means to make the cable to do that you slip the first three stitches onto a cable needle hold them to the back, then you knit the next 3 stitches off the left needle then the 3 off the cable needle
here is a good tutorial video just scroll down to decorative stitches and watch the cable video if you need to
Sm means slip the marker from the left needle on to the right

Good Luck!

Thank you.  I'm doing pretty good on understanding how to do the stitches, but the abbreviations are something else.  Thanks for your help.
