aaa! i feel so lame. Ok, so im a scarf person, seeing as thats the only thing i seem to be able to do, but i usually get bored and stop because i dont really care if i have a 3rd chunky green scarf. I got this book just to learn how to knit, and i can do basics and stuff, but i have no idea how to do the hat!!!! I have circular needles and the double pointed ones but i really dont get the instructions, plus i cant figure out how to cast on on the  circualr needles (plus when i try to use the double ponited it falls off one end!). IM SUPER DETERMINED TO MAKE THIS HAT! If someone could try and explain anything about it to me, id be soooo happy! Im basically someone who loves knitting but has no idea how to read instruction books, considering i first learned out to knit in girl scouts in like 6th grade, in which we quit/gave up before we ever learned to bind of (the need for this book a year or 2 later...) THANKS SO MUCH!

fabricfightsfire:  I feel your pain!!  I learned to knit from my neighbor but she only ever makes dishcloths so I had to kinda figure this stuff out myself.  What really helped me was knittinghelp.com.  At this site they have videos (really helpful for a visual learner like me!!) of pretty much everything.  Good luck!!

xamonster:  heeheehee at least you still liked the pattern Wink  I'm always running into problems w/gauge 'cause I hate swatching.  Usually I just alter the pattern so it works but with tychus I didn't have to (yay!)

peopleshootinghat:  So cute; I love the color!!  What yarn did you use?  And the matching mittens are hot too Cheesy  I can't seem to be able to find a good mitten pattern, which one did you use??

well... the yarn was red heart comfort prints in worsted weight. I forget the colour no I bought it a long time ago and the tag is missing. it's 100% acrylic and normally you can get huge 12oz ball for around $7 if you go to wallmart or something.

here's the link to the mitten pattern:

(plus when i try to use the double ponited it falls off one end!). 

The trick I use to keep stitches on my DPNs while knitting hats (or anything with lots of stitches) is putting point protectors on the tips that aren't currently being used to make stitches. Works like a charm, unless of course I accidentally knock one of the point protectors off and don't realize it!  Grin

As an added bonus, if you use different colored ones on the needle ends that end and begin a row, it makes keeping track of that really easy, especially for increases/decreases.

I don't know if your willing to give this a go or not but when I find that I'm having trouble keeping my stitches on the dps,, it's usually cuz I'm knitting too loosely or I have too many stitches on one needle.  This can be cured by a second set of dps.  I just divide my stitches up into smaller amounts on more needles.  I've done this quite a few times 'cuz I hate circulars.  Also.... you have to try and remember after the completion of each needle to shove your stitches back to the center.  It seems a pain but reduces your need to cuss! LOL
