AprilDraven, what kind of yarn would you recommend for this hat? Maybe I can dig something up Wink.

awesome job Smiley
I may have to make one of these (or several) as my classmates and I have all become obsessed as well (between ages 25-33 lol) and think these might go over FANTASTICALLY!

I just used the cheap acrylic yarn at Walmart. I think the actual hat was made with two strands held together but I'm not sure.

Walmart is a bit far away for me, but I can find acrylic in my drawers, I'm sure. Thank you very much!

I am SO making this for my Twilight-obcessed friend's birthday. Might have to make one for myself too, it looks snuggly! Thanks so much for figuring this out and sharing! I'll be linking to this as well.

I feel better now that I know I'm not the only one detail obsessed about that hat.  I made my first "Bella" hat with the free pattern I found a few months ago and it bothered me so much that it didn't have the ridge around the top and that it only had four sets of "cables" down the hat.
I ended up making a new pattern for myself, too, just so I would have it closer to the movie hat.

I have made one with two strands held together using an I hook and it really was stiff.  I do want to try the hat again with Lion's Brand Homespun.  I'll do that next.

So this is great and I just tried making it but my head is smaller than most so the hat was waaaay to big.  I have frogged it and plan on making it again with a smaller hook.

my head is smaller than most too so I just make hat patterns a size or 2 bigger. If you want, stop increasing on rnd 8 or 9 and that should make it a size smaller too. Which ever way is easier  Grin

*Wonderful* pattern, I'm so trying this one out once I get the time. What yarn weight did you use?

I used a G hook instead of an H and also stopped increasing once the dc was at 8 instead of 9 in each row.  It fits perfectly.  I also found the Edwardian Homespun and used that yarn.  The hat is so cozy!  I almost want to keep it for myself but I made it for my mom who's completely obsessed with Twilight so she'll love it.  Here's my finished product- it is hard to take a pic of your own head and it doesn't help that my apartment doesn't allow light to escape:




(excuse the tired face please, I haven't been sleeping well due to the increase of stress this past week)

Thanks a lot for sharing the pattern.  I'm off to try you star patterned slouchy hat!
