I think that everyone knits stuff out of Cascade 220 because it is just a really basic worsted weight wool that comes in a ton of colors.  So it's adaptable for lots of different projects, and it is relatively inexpensive (helloknitty.com sells it for $6 and each hank has 220 yards).  Apparently it's similar to Lamb's Pride (except no mohair so less fuzzy) or elann.com's Peruvian Highland wool.  Most lys have Cascade and Lamb's Pride, they are worth trying out.

great advice. i knitted the earflaps and saved my daughter's hat from the back of the closet. she loves it now that covers her little ears! Smiley

i even made little tassels on the end.
i got the earflap pattern from Last Minute Knitted Gifts...

That's adorable!  Earflaps would be a fun addition on a grown-person size hat also.

all of these hats are really cute..dont know what it is but the pictures in the book didnt make it really appeal to me..maybe it was the colors? i think i would do it with some earflaps and stripe it. can't wait! *counts the days to pay day*

I agree, juicebox, the striped hat put me off the pattern. I've since done two after seeing the pretty hats here.

The first, done exactly by the pattern, came out tiny, but I used larger needles and added some cable row repeats to the other. Pic on my blog www.craftgirls.net.

Hey girls. If you make this hat up in Lion brand Jiffy, it's not too short! As a matter of fact, it's the perfect length. Just hits below the ears. I'd post pics but it's for a swap. Smiley

This may be for sale on my etsy:

Ok, this should probably go in a different thread but it feels like it belongs here. I used the leftover yarn from my cable hat (back on page 1 of this thread) to make these:

I sorta used the pattern from the Hurry Up Spring Armwarmers, but changed the cable pattern and the length and probably the gauge.....

Eh, I decided to go ahead and post pics. I have so many swaps going on they'll never figure it out. Plus I think my pictures are cute. Smiley
So help me out guys, to pom-pom or not to pom-pom?
