I made one without beads using the Rowan Cashsoft DK Baby in Pixie. I loved knitting it and Grumperina did a wondeful job of desigingint this but....I'm not so sure about wearing it. It doesn't cover my ears at all.  Undecided

funny, mine is way too LONG for my head... I do have a slightly smaller head than normal.
Do you think you got row guage?

And like a downward smoke, the slender stream

Mine is a little small too.  I'm looking for a young girl to give it too.  Unfortunately all of my friends have little boys.  I was never really planning on keeping it anyways as it is a bit too girly for me but it was a really fun item to knit.

I cast on for my Odessa last night! I'm using the recommended yarn and recommended needles.

This is my first in-the-round project, and let me tell you I had to start over more than once. But I've got the border so far, and I'm about to switch to the size 6 needles. Let's hope I do it correctly.

hey Odessa knitters, I've got a question for you: I finished the first row of the pattern and I'm a bit confused as to how it matches up to the ribbing, in the pictures it looks kinda like the ribbing swirls up to the top and I know this is achieved with the ssks but things do not seem to be lining up correctly. My first yarn over is right next to the k3 section below it (awesome that is where is should be), the next is right over the first knit stitch of the k3 that it is above, and the next is 2 in (this is not so awesome, I think). So am I doing something wrong or is this actually going right?
All yours are fabulous by the way, I hope mine looks half as good.

Don't pay attention to the way it lines up with the cables below.  The entire thing rotates as you knit it.  That's why she has you mark your round, so you know that it's a round, cause otherwise, you wouldn't be able to tell because it just keeps spiralling.  It's pretty cool that way. Smiley

Ok, just to clarify, this is what I think it should look like (l are knit stitch's = are purl and o are yarn overs)
o     o     o    o    o
   o     o    o     o     o

and this is what it looks like (kinda):
    o     o      o      o      o
     o     o      o      o       o

but it evens out? Sorry for asking the same question twice, I just don't want to knit real far in and find out it looks all funky.
Thank you for the quick answer to the other post!

just from the diagram you did.. it looks like you aren't ssking or you are missing yos. Yes, go back, something is wrong.

I got the yarn about 2 weeks ago now and I'm dying to make it.  I bought beads for it from AC Moore, but though I liked the color, they really weren't all the same size  Angry  They were marked 6/0 beads, but some were bigger and some were smaller - darn cheap beads!  So, now I'm waiting to get the beads I ordered from eBay (since there are no decent beads I could find at AC Moore or Michaels and I don't have a decent bead shop anywhere near me)... since I needed beads for another project anyhow I figured I'd order some for this project at the same time.  I should have them by Monday - I can hardly wait!!

Everyone's completed hats look great so far!  Grin
