I have to say a HUGE kudos! That hat rocks! I especially love how the hat covers most of the face.

And, I'd like to second the request for the pattern! My boy would adore a hat like that(and I would SO steal it).

Thanks, everyone!

goodkarma, the hat fit her perfectly, and my gauge was exactly the same as the book. I didn't alter the pattern at all.  Smiley

katiewill, I'm afraid I don't remember the brand of yarn I used, and can't find the label anywhere... However, it was 75% acrylic, and 25% wool, and the weight was identical to the book.

Baby baby baby!

I made a bunny hat for a friend's little girl who turned 1 on Saturday.  Cheesy

She was getting tired and fidgety when gift time came around, but I managed to snag a photo of the baby in her new hat.

Image is a little big, so click here for it!

The hat itself was pretty simple and fun. I used a mixture of acrylic and wool, and the short-row shaping, which I'd never done before, was pretty easy! I'd love to do more for friend's babies!  Grin

Thanks for the compliments, everyone!  Cheesy

Porfiry and rabideloise, I was lucky enough to find pretty much the exact yarn listed in the book, superwash 100% merino wool. They were low on shipment at my LYS that day, and had little supply of the yarn, so I settled with the rosy pink colour. porfiry, the hat wasn't difficult at all. I was afraid of making cables for the first time, but they're super-easy.

Lynn, yeah, they are pretty much all required.  Embarrassed I had some size 9 dpns that I used for the top hat shaping(and what poordumbbird said is right, you CAN use dpns all the way through if you wish), but yes, there's no real way around it otherwise that I could find out. If I'm wrong, prove me wrong!  Cheesy

bkknits29, I didn't use any elastic. The bit of ribbing at the rim of the hat acts as a bit of an elastic, all the elastic you need. The only extra thing I needed was the plastic mesh to give the brim a bit of stiffness(but that's included in the pattern materials in the book).

Thanks again! I love making hats.  Cheesy

Over the past few weeks, I've finished two hats, one from SnB and one from SnB Nation. Time to share!  Cheesy Apologies, the images are a little big.

This is my kitty hat, knit with superwash Merino in a rosy pink. I'd like to eventually do another one, as I messed up the i-cords a bit and the ears are supertiny. I'd love to do a deep violet one, similar to the book.

The second one is the Headline News cap from SnB Nation. I had a big ball of slate blue acrylic that I didn't know what to do with, so I tried it on for size with this cap. Turned out a tad big, but it's supercomfy and although I just finished it yesterday, I've already gotten compliments on it.  Smiley

That's all!   Grin

Awesome Pashas!

I noticed that Knitty rated this pattern as piquant - how did you two find it? Difficult for a still-learning new knitter? I've done scarves and hats.  Huh

Man the Firefly fever is spreading!  Cheesy

Keep us posted on what you call it, hmm? And how the progress is going!

Man, my dream would be to own a hip, trendy yarn store.  Cheesy

For the record, on the hat in my picture, I did pretty much the same thing as Emisanboo did for the orange bit. Instead of knitting the rib and then knitting 3 1/2 inches of stockinette as the pattern suggests, I knit stockinette until the whole orange bit measured to 3 1/2 inches. If you do it the first way, the orange part becomes far too wide. Should have mentioned that before! I also cast on 56 stitches on mine, and the hat fit just perfect. But I have a small head, so 64 is probably safer.

And yes, I'm attending a local art/fantasy-type con in June, and am also thinking of making some to sell. I imagine since the pattern creator does it without qualms, we can too...? I plan on emaiing her for permission just in case, as it's her pattern and I would want the same respect given to be if it were mine.. It's not like I'm stealing her business by selling them on the internet.  Wink
