I'm pretty sure it was less than one skein. I started with an incomplete skein and had to use part of a new one so hard to say how much it took.

Not sure what the name of the color was, but I used size 5 straights. Lifelikeweeds mentioned that size 6 gave a better gauge than whatever the pattern calls for, and I was using a slightly bulky yarn so I went a size down from that.

The instuctions made the wrap & turn more confusing than it has to be. I looked elsewhere for a tutorial on short rows and then it all became clear.
Row 2 should be more like:

Inc 1 st, *P2, K2* (8 times), P2, W&T* (Wrap, slip the wrapped stitch, and Turn: (37 st; 1 on left needle, 36 on right needle)
*After working the second P st, with 1 stitch left, move the yarn between the needles to the back of the work; slip the next st on the left needle to the right needle purlwise; move the yarn between the needles to the front of the work; slip the wrapped stitch back to the left needle; turn). After turning, you will have one (unknit) stitch on the right needle, and 36 stitches on the left

"like knitting with dreams"

You should write yarn ads, because I totally want some of this stuff now!
Sweet gift, I think your choice to use a finer yarn was a good one.

Oh yeah, I got so frustrated at that point, I nearly gave up the pattern.

All it's asking you to do is short rows, like you're knitting socks or something. When you turn after row 2, there should be a stitch on your right needle which has not been knit. After row 4, there will be two stitches, after row 6, three stitches, etc. There will always be 36 "active" stitches and as you increase, more will be added to the "inactive" stitches on that end of the work.

Hope that helps!

This hat looked kinda lame on the mannequin but I was inspired by lifelikeweeds' post. So here's my version with tassels! The yarn is Lion Brands' Microspun:


I must aviate!

Lol, I always swatch, I swear! The hat part came out fine, it's just this silly ribbing is too loose to hold it up.
Here's the site where the duckie pattern came from:
