Hello! I was planning on making a Jayne Cobb hat from Firefly  (you can see it here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=19076.0 ) and I going to try to make it, but it seems to be a bit advanced for me to do on needles, so I want to try it on my new Knifty Knitter. This would be my first Knifty Knitter project and I was just wondering if anyone had any tips for this hat or a similar one. Thankies!

Well, I can't tell you about that, but I can tell you I never knit a stitch in my life before I knit my hat from the pattern in the Jayne Cobb Hat! thread, and I think it's pretty easy.  If you know how to K and P, and you know how to keep you trailing skein on the right side when you're switching between the two, you should be  just fine doing it the old fashioned way.  If you can't find the pattern you need, give it a try.

Pieces,

Joanne

I can only knit! I can't purl or do anything except  knitting! (It's embarrasing...  Embarrassed ) but so far my knitting projects= 2 1/2 scarves, just knitted. But I suppose I'll need to learn sometime, so maybe I'll give it a shot. Thank you!

Purling should be no problem considering that you've done 2 1/2 scarves. [good job!]

knittinghelp.com is wonderful for learning purposes.

www.yarngear.com has directions on how to purl on a Knifty Knitter.

I made a hat with a scarf attached on a knifty knitter.. to make that hat, I'd just move the scarf/flap parts over to where your ears would be. 

Here's my tutorial on making the hat I made. http://community.livejournal.com/craftgrrl/7439014.html

Hope that helps  Smiley

OK. My last post was bust. I'm really new to this so bear with me.
I just finished making the Jayne Cobb hat this morning. Here's the pattern I used: http://dryope.typepad.com/grove/2006/02/jayne_cobb_hat_.html

I used Red Heart Light and Lofty yarn for this. I was really skeptical of using Red Heart yarn, but I think this turned out pretty sweet!
