1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Earflap hat pattern? on: May 27, 2008 08:56:36 PM
I'm looking for a specific sort of earflap hat. I want to knit up one that's boxier in style, with earflaps and a flap on the front.

I found a non-knit version (http://www.nauticalia.com/uk-info/value-under-25/ear_flap_hat/96121.html) but I was wondering if there were any knit patterns in a similar style out there.

I've seen a hat pattern and now I can't remember where it was.

The picture for the hat showed a guy wearing it.  The hat itself is grey and is sort of a beanie with a bill. 

Please help me know I'm not crazy and help me find this.  Thanks so much!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Looking for a hat pattern on: December 06, 2007 05:52:42 PM
I'm making a hat for a male friend.  I'm using Lion Wool, which calls for US8 needles, but I'll be using US7. 

I invented a top-down hat, but the top is too pointed for my tastes.  Something in me doesn't like bottom-up patterns, so I'd like to find a top-down pattern.  But I want a smoother top.  Is there a way to make the top-down hat less pointed?

Of course, if you have a bottom-up, very simple pattern that you really love, I'd love to take a look, too.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / mystery yarn on: March 16, 2007 06:36:06 PM
I have some mystery yarn that I rescued from a thriftstore sweater.  Problem is, I didn't think to make any gauge notes or anything before unraveling, so I have no idea what needle size to use.

I have no idea how to even get specific enough in a search to find the answer.  I remember reading one time that by doubling the yarn and putting it through a needle sizer, the appropriate needle could be decided.  Is this true?

I'm sorry for asking something I know has been asked, but I honestly can't find the answer.  Thanks so much.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Boye Needlemaster issue on: January 17, 2007 02:18:29 PM
I bought the Boye set quite awhile ago but only recently noticed that some of the needles flare out where the join to the circular cord.  It's only on the size 9 and size 10.5 needles.  There is a slight flare on a couple other sizes, but not enough to really matter.  on the 9 and 10.5's, though, it's pretty severe. 

Has anyone else had this problem?  Any d.i.y. solutions?
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What would /you/ do on: January 07, 2007 12:06:40 AM
with 408 yards of 100% mercerized cotton yarn?

The yarn in question is 3 skeins of Patons Grace (in Marine; navy blue).  The suggested needle size is US 6.

By the way, I'm new in these parts.  Just thought I'd poke my head out and see what thoughts are out there.
