I'm in too, but I am also indecisive! 
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Eskimo-ish bonnet cap. (Now with pattern) on: August 10, 2007 05:38:50 PM
i'm so disappointed! i saw this hat and i thought "oooh that's exactly what i've been looking for!" and then i tried knitting it.. and realized that the numbers don't add up.

so we CO 110 sts... but later on, we're supposed to

P1, K22, P1, K26, P1, K22, P1... but this doesn't add to 110!

oh my head! it is hatless and confused!

but i understand that you kind of made up the pattern a while after you made the hat so it makes sense that you can't really remember what you did. *sigh* any hope for a revision?

I attempted to knit this and had the same problem! I'm a good pattern follower, but not a good pattern fixer.  I hope it corrects, this really is a cute hat!

I can't believe this!  And the fact that they are even stealing from charity sites is just tasteless.  I saw a hat there from headhuggers.org too. 

I'm going to post this at the flickr amigurumi group so it can get more exposure.

And done!

I'm not a fan of the back of the hat (again, I blame my giant head), but I think I pom-pom will fix it:

I started a modified version of tragicheroine's pattern.  I had to modify it to fit my gynormous head!  I started out with 72 stitches, but knew it was gonna be too small.  I casted on 90 stitches am now working on the body of the hat with a total of 130 stitches!  I hope to share finished photos by the end of the week.

Everyone's hats look fabulous!

The decreased appear to be quite random.  I found a couple there (yellow arrow), but I can't find any others, err, umm, I am going cross-eyed staring at it!  

Keep us updated!

The flat Cal in the picture has, by my count, 26 ribs.  Each of those consists of two columns of stitches.
26 x 2 = 52.  Good job.
There are also two columns in each of the lowered sections.
52 x 2 = 104.

If I'm doing this right, not even the Cal in the picture is made to the pattern.  It has a hundred and four CO, not the posted one hundred and twenty. 

It is also not the one on the model's head, which has green in it.

That's my take on it.  Correct my calculations if need be.

I was actually wondering about this myself but I am not so good with the numbers  Wink.  I'm glad you did it  Grin

Does anyone know if Knitty has people test the pattern before they publish it? 

I love that they empasize the need to get the correct guage which is "20 sts / 22 rows = 4 inches in 2x2 Rib, lightly stretched".  "Lightly stretched" is open to interpretation.  They really should include a guage in plain stockinette for better accuracy.  That's my opinion, though I am a guage rebel!
