I found a really pretty ball of yarn at my LYS, its like mulitcolored and soo gorgeous, but its wool , even though the pattern said wool, i have bad experiences and other people telling me wool is too itchy.

I used wool for mine and wore it outside in the snow last week and did not find it to be itchy but I have crap loads of roseanne roseanna danna hair so it may have shielded me from the itchyness!  I say go for it!

I would use the wool. WHY NOT!!!. anyway there's a trick to having an itch free forehead and it keeps your head even warmer, in case of blistering winter.

All you need is 20 minutes to do some hand sewing.

just go to your local fabric store and buy some fairly light weight polar fleece...then...

cut out a shape like this
  +---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
  |                                                                                                                     |
A|                                                                                                                     |B
  |                                                                                                                     |
  +---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
                                                           C

make sure that this is the same length and height as the seed stitch band you knit at the beginning of the pattern. Add an 1/2" on to A & B for the allowance of a seam.

Sew A to B.
then sew this band to the inside of your seed stitch band

then...cut two shapes like this

                  D
+--------------------------------+
\                                        /
  \                                    /
   \                                  /
     \                              /
      \                            /
        \                        /
1/4"   \                      /  1/4"
 ---->    \                  /  <-----
            \                /
              \            /       
                \        /
                  \    /
                    V
               

make the triangles just a bit smaller than the ear flaps (1/4" on each bottom edge) .
then...
on the inside of your hat position your triangles and sew edge D to the appropriate places on C
then sew the remainder fleece flaps to the knitted flaps.

I hope that made sense!!

GOOOOO KITTY HAT!!! meow

Then, to decrease.. which i dont know so ill try to learn it on different needles in between projects. Also, on the top of the pattern it says some random stuff which i dont understand.

I have a question about the pattern. It says seed st. for 1 3/4, st st for 3 3/4 and to put i stitch marker every 12 stitch. She means just on the last row right? Because i havent put any markers yeat (I just did 1 inch of st st, finished seed). Thanks  Grin

I took that to mean: after you knit 3 3/4" of st st then place the markers.  Or you could just place them now and just sl them as you knit.

Just thought I'd share the Knittyville hat that I made for my sister:



I knit it with a camoflage from Red Heart so it isn't warm, but very stylish. Wink Cool
