I LOVE YOU!!!! Ever since I saw that hat I kept telling everyone I wanna knit that hat! I'm SOOOOOOO glad you made one! It looks so great! This is my next weekend project, screw everything else, just take me to the yarn store!!

(seriously, I'm so excited I'm practically choking!)

Oh, p.s., you should post this on the Knitty Coffee Shop forum!


I made the hat! I was so excited I knit it up in an evening of desperate housewives and other season finales. The pattern was great, the only thing I changed was the length. I added an extra "row" at the bottom, except without the eyelet row.

The yarn I used was Cascade 220 for the main hat part and Red Heart Whirly for the coloured strands. Bothe yarns are soft and warm, perfect for a hat! I think I am going to block it though because the bottom curls a bit.

So, what you have been waiting for, the hat! (mind you it is not the most flattering hat on me, but I still love it cause it reminds me of Mrs.Weasley and how she knits crazy sweaters that no one likes but they still wear them)

Thanks again for the pattern! Now I have to find other HP things to knit Cheesy

So, basically, I'm a Weasley at heart. I've got the hair, the complexion, and the tolerance for flurries of adolescent children. That's why when I saw this little number:

I had to have it. My version is far less wooly and far yellower than the original though.

I used Red Heart Super Saver in the only orangey color I had (more like a warm yellow, but I'm cheap and didn't want to buy anything), the rainbow bow thing is Lion Brand Landscapes (so soft and fun to knit with, just sort of expensive for the yardage/fiber content), and the burgundy is probably Red Heart as well.

i didn't make a weasley hat... it's more of a decoration for the top of my head...

i sorta misread the directions and thought i could get away with it... ( where it said garter stitch 3 rows, meant 3 rows actual rows, not just the one full row, but 3 times... oh i don't know how to explain it... just know i did one, not 3)  it seemed to be looking good, until i started decreasing.
and when it was finished, i tried it on...and well... oops!  BUT

It was my first hat, first circular needle project... I'm just happy that i conquered my circular obstacle!! this is something i could do in one evening, so i might cast on another one tomorrow!

thanks again for the pattern goldfish girl.

ok so after that disasterous first top of head decoration, I casted on another right away, but ran out of the yarn about 55% into the hat... so I just stopped knitting it... then got all into crochet beanies and what not...but have been doing so feverishly that it has taken a toll on my wrist. 
so i decided to switch back to knitting last night, and since i signed up for another hogwarts swap... (I just couldn't help myself!!) and i wanted to practice switching yarn with the circs for the scarf i thought, hey i'll just use the left over burgundy and complete the ginny hat.  and i did.  Tada!!

(it looks way better in person.)
(hehe, this is where the picture would go if I had taken it last night.  i'll take it at lunch and then post it.)

It's actually a hat this time that can fit on top of my head.  although mine doesn't really look like goldfishgirl's... the hat sorta has this bucket feel.  When i get to the top of the hat, it just gets really tiny... and forms it's own little hat... is that normal? or i'm just not counting my stitches correctly?
