I know!  I like using dpns more, but the sets of 4 have finally driven me to magic loop.  it's just so unpleasant.

tragicheroine, how many balls of microspun did you use?  (I'm kind of unfamiliar with using two strands held together -- does that mean I need to buy two balls of yarn?)

Well I knit from frogged things so I'm not really sure how much I used, more than one ball I think, so I'd get two. If you're going to make something similar to this, you don't have to use the two strands together method, I just had that yarn handy.

I absolutely love it! Knitted hats are my new favorite thing, since I have a (slightly Smiley) large head, and store-bought don't fit! I'm going to attempt to create one that's a combination of your hat and the DROPS pattern- we'll see how it goes! I've never made anything without a full pattern.

i really like your hat, tracicherione, it reminds me of a pine cone, the way the bobbles sort of spiral around.. there is a name for that type of mathematical sequence but i can't remember it..

good work!

K, I'm not sure if you'll remember this or not.  But my only question is how many inches did you knit before you began decreasing, and also what is the length of your initial ribbing.  I totally like you're so much more than the garnstudio one, so that's why I'm curious.  Well done, btw.

great hat!  i saw it and pretty immediately decided to attempt to recreate it... it worked out pretty well so here is my not-very well written but should-be-accurate pattern for anyone who might be interested:

(I used some Lion Brand wool I had lying around and did not double up the yarn as in the original though that may have worked out better had I seen the suggestion first...)


CO 88 stitches

K in 1X1 ribbing on size 6 needles

Switch to size 9 circular needles and P all stitches

Round 1- *p1, k1, p1 into one stitch, k3tog tbl* repeat from * to * til end of round

Round 2 and all even rounds- P

Round 3- *k3tog tbl, p1, k1, p1 into one stitch* repeat from * to * til end of round

Repeat these three rounds til work measures about 5 inches, end on even round

Begin shaping crown

Round 1- *p8, p2tog* to end of round

Round 2- *p1, k1, p1 into one stitch, k3tog tbl* repeat from * to * til end of round

Round 3- P all stitches

Round 4- *p7, p2tog* to end of round

Round 5- *k3tog tbl, p1, k1, p1 into one stitch* repeat from * to * til end of round

Round 6- P all stitches

Round 7- *p6, p2tog* to end of round

Round 8- *p1, k1, p1 into one stitch, k3tog tbl* repeat from * to * til end of round

Continue in this way, decreasing number of purled stitches between decreases by one.  When you've gotten to last row (aka *p0, p2tog*), break the yarn a foot away from the knitting, thread the yarn through the remaining loops twice, pull closed, and weave in the ends.

Thanks for the inspiration Smiley
