So I love, love, love Keri Russell's hat.




It looks really simple.  I'm assuming I just cast on a larger amount than "normal" and then work in 1x1 rib for about 10 inches?  Then probably k2tog for a more rapid decrease than a regular cap?

Basically I'm looking for a little confirmation before I delve in  Grin

I think the decreasing would actually begin earlier, but be more gradual than your typical hat to get a more rounded shape (most hats are knit straight for most of the bottom, then get sharply decreased - compare a plain beanie pattern).

hmmm... I think you might be right... So instead of steadily decreasing (i.e. k7,k2tog then k6, ktog) I'll decrease then knit a round, decrease then knit a round etc.?

I think spacing the decreases further part (i.e. less decreases per round) might work too.

if it were handknit... i'm thinking it might be knit toip down. then cast off tightly so it doesn't roll? idk...

what if I cast on with a smaller needle, then knit a row or two & switch to a larger needle?  Would that stop the roll?

I just joined the slouch-a-long...it's in among the other knitalongs.  there's some links to slouchy hat patterns, and we'll all be making them together, so that might be a good place to generate more ideas.  just a suggestion!

looks to me like it is 1X1 rib, you can see the slightest hint of space between each knit stitch. i don't know about the shaping, but perhaps you can base yours off of one of the patterns in the slouch-a-long (thanks for joining!  Smiley).

I agree with lilizzyl.  There is a 1 x 1 rib.  You can see the beginning of a decrease in to top rigth hand of one of the pics.

Yeah I agree to. I would decrease later if you look really colse you can see the decrese. I have a hat with a simmilar shape and i decreased it in the last two inches. I had 126 stitches co. Pm after every 9th stitch 2tog before the marker in every 3rd row til only 14 stitches remain. But I'm not sure how to maintain the 1x1.
No matter how you'll do it plzshow us the resulst. Grin

I'll just have to space them differently I think.
If I put in stitch marker of where I want to decrese then I do right slanting decrease on one side of the marker and left slanting decrease on the the other side.  That way I keep two stitches together as a knit and the next two together as a purl.
That probably doesn't make any sense to anyone but myself Smiley

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!

It's not a 1x1 rib. It's just a little spacey because it was knit on bigger needles, so when it stretches, it reveals the space in between the stitches. As to the curling, the edge might just be Bound off, in the manner that curls the opposite way, countering the effect of the stockinette curl.

Ok, so I am a noob at knitting, BUT I do the other yarn sport... have any of you ever done a cast on with a crochet hook? My gamma used to do it... all you do is single crochet over your needle as if it were a row of crocheting, it leaves an awesome tight edge on things that you don't necessarily want a 'cuff' on...
Oh, and I spotted a couple more increases (or decreases) on in the very next row (to the right of the yellow arrow) AND another one, 3 or 4 more rows to the right and about 4 rows down... they do seem to be randomly placed...
I suggest that if you are randomly placing increases or decreases, that you still have a 'plan'... so, if you are in a pattern that would call for an increase every 10 stitches and you have 100 casted on (that would be 10 increases right?) so I would make sure I increased randomly 10 times in that row... Smiley
Ok, that's my not so experienced opinion!

Well they're not actually hotlinked... on their site, they display full size images in popups with just the image, no different than that.  I guess they block anything where the referrer is not themselves. Anyway, I'll remove them.

A direct link to the image without going through the front page is what they consider hotlinked.

Looks like I'm going to have to try another, so next one I'll try top down with big needles in stockinette stitch

First attempt done... essentially a failure Smiley
It's not nearly as slouchy, and I think this also proves that her hat is stockinette





So now I just need to learn how to knit a hat top down.

I think you've got the right idea, maybe it just needs to be a little longer before you do the decreases?

thing is with the chunky yarn and the ribbing it was stiff... So I was worried if I just kept knitting it would stick straight up on my head Smiley

Larger needles; CO less stitches according to gauge, and it'll be looser and floppier.

That looks exactly like full needle rib in machine knitting. It will essentially look like stockinette's knit side on both sides (like double knitting), but it doesn't curl.
