You could give it a try and see how you do . I knitted mine on dpns. I think that a 20" might be a little too long make it hard and tight to knit but it depends on how stretchy the yarn is I guess. goodluck

Thanks for the info. I think I'm just going to pick up some dpns soon. Another question... both of Kirsten's hats seem to have a kind of loose, fun, baggy fit, while it looks like a lot of the hats I've seen from these patterns are more fitted, like a beanie/skullcap, which is nice, but not what I'm looking for. If you follow the pattern exactly, will you get the movie look or the more tightly fitted look? Do I need to adjust this pattern to get a true Elizabethtown or Mary Jane hat?

If you want the spiderman 2 baggy look follow the pattern and it should be baggy enough, if not just contiue knitting a few more rounds before you finish off. I think most of us didn't knit the full amount stated in the pattern because we found it to be too baggy. basically I measured from where I wanted the edge of the hat to sit on my forehead to the middle of the top of my head adding how ever many inches I needed to get the baggy-ness I wanted. That's how long you'll make the hat before finishing it. Hope this helps

Ok, thanks. I am planning to make the Elizabethtown one first, since I already have a perfect bright red yarn for it... unless I happen across a great colorway for the Spidey one!

Here is my attempt at the other hat.  I like this one better than the first one I made.

I hope you all enjoy Smiley

It's probably just me, but I can't see your picture!

I started this last night... the lacey one. So far, it seems smaller than I expected... but I haven't gotten very far into it. Should I rip or keep going? I even added 10 stitches!

 cnp71201 it does have a lot of stretch, or at least mine did. I thought mine looked too small but I kept going and it turned out alright in the end. One way to make sure it will fit is to do a gauge swatch for the ribbing and measure the circumference of your head to work out how many stiches you need. You don't want it to be too loose either or it won't stay on. After a few wears it seems to stretch out a bit. Hope this helps. I'm going to make another one of these soon for my friend.

Hey gals!
I just watched the movie, and so want to make the Elizabethtown hat!
Did you guys change the number of cast on stitches? The first attempt a long time ago was horrific. The circumfrance was the size a child's head.

Anyone still knitting this? I've got both the Spiderman and the E-town hat going, but am working on the Elizabethtown one to get a better idea of the fit before I finish my Spiderman one, since I'm using Paton's SWS for it and I don't like the idea of having to rip it out very much.

My Elizabethtown hat really does not look anything like it does in the movie so far. I've got 7.5 inches right now, and it's not fitting kinda loosely like in the movie, instead it just looks like it is going to be tight and really long. What should I do? I really haven't seen this hat finished at all the way I want it; I don't want to wear it like a skullcap, but instead, want the ribbing folded under and for it to be a little baggy on my head. Is the weight of my DPNs keeping it from looking right? Do yall think it will be ok if I finish it? How much length should I give it? It just seems so tight right now.

I'm making the E-town hat. I haven't seen the movie, so I'm not sure how it should look according to that, but I liked that pattern. Mine looks huge, but I think I changed the number of Cast on stitched because of my gague. It's almost done, but I cast on about a few weeks ago.
