Such a cute hat!  Here is my wimpy yellow version, which was made for my friend who is due to have her baby next month:



This was only my second non-scarf project . . . and my first dpn experience.  Other than constant fear that my stitches were going to fall off, it was fun!

I've now made two of these. My first was on sevens, and the second was on eights, which got me closer to the right guage. So one is a little smaller...I'm still going to send both off to the intended baby (born Wednesday!). I figure the smaller one might fit now, and the bigger in the fall.  I was originally going to use pink, but I couldn't find the Patons in that color, so I went for purple. Good thing, too, cause she's got red hair and we wouldn't want any clashing.

I was worried about that too, so I wrapped a rubberband around the ends of the needles I wasn't using.  It took a little time to unwrap/wrap them for each round, but the peace of mind was worth it.

Cute hat, by the way!

That is a GREAT idea!  I will do that next time (I'm starting a second hat tonight for the same baby-to-be, but this time in a cool kiwi green color of the same yarn.

I am inspired by your hats!  HOwever I bought the perfect bright blue baby yarn, i have needles, and dpn but i can't find my book!!!  aarrrghhh!  

can someone give me a quick run down of:
1) the type and gauge of yarn
2) the number of cast on stitches
3) the height of the hat before you begin decresing
4) the decrease pattern

I know this is asking for a lot I am hoping my book will turn up...  Sad

thanks

I don't have my book in front of me, but I remember some of the details from the hat.

1)  The yarn used was something like Canadia (?) in acrylic, but I don't remember the gauge.

2/3)  CO 64 stitches, knit one round (making sure not to twist the stitches), join the stiches, and knit for 5" (from the cast on row) before decreasing.

3/4)  Transfer the needles to dpns, putting a stitch marker after every 8th stitch--the 4 needles will each have 16 stitches with one marker in between them.  You k2tog before each marker and each needle's end and keep going around decreasing until there are 4 stitches left.  Then begin the I-cord.

I hope this helps...  I think the book has clearer directions and I am just going from memory.  Good luck!

I just used a worsted weight yarn . . . can't remember the gauge right off the top of my head (at work), but I do know I used size 8 needles.

Hope that helps?

It's Patons Canadiana, and the gauge is 16 sts and 22 rows = 4 inches.  I also ended up using size 8 needles to make gauge.
