Now I have to go find it and print off that pattern!!

Here's mine!  It's Lion Brand wool I kool-aid dyed.  On the recommended needles and exactly with the pattern.  I guess either I knit tight or it's smaller than worsted?  I didn't see a weight on the yarn label.

And check this, look how the stripes line up almost exactly.  I couldn't believe it.  I certainly did not plan it, I wouldn't know how to if I tried.

I'm not usually a bright color type of person, but I think I like it.  It reminds me of a watermelon.  Which gave me an idea of making one with the few first rows green and the rest in red with black specks to resemble a watermelon even more.  Wouldn't that be cute for kids?  BTW, has anyone ever made one for a child?  I have a little dyed yarn left over and I want to make one for my 5-year-old daughter.

Ok, sorry to ramble.  This was definitely fun and quick.  Here it is...

And on me...

Lion brand wool is worsted, but it still is probably smaller than what the pattern uses... You probably knit tight too.

I really, really like yours, it does look watermelon-y.
What are the odds it would end up striping like that? Pretty nifty.

I just started mine tonight.

These are all so cool!  I can't wait to finish mine (after I finish up some last minute Christmas gifts that have priority).

i finished mine a few days ago but don't have a button here... i've been moving and most of my sewing stuff is 4 hrs away =( i think i will make a polymer clay one  just to try it out. i want to make more but i need to see how much smaller (or not) to make it. i can hold it up to my head but the real test is to see if it stays put when buttoned and such =)

My button doesn't match, heh. It was the only button I had on hand and I thought: why not? I severely modified the pattern to fit my freakishly small, hobbit-like head. I believe I cast on 80 stitches, and probably shortened it by about fifteen to twenty rows. I believe I only worked five or seven repeats of row 5.
