oh sheesh, that's what I get for writing when I'm half asleep, LOL!  Ignore what I wrote, it doesn't take into account the increases.  I updated the pithy hat pattern to include directions for the e-town hat, so just use that Smiley it has directions for a three stitch cable or 5 stitch cable.  I fyou want hte cable bigger with less ribbing between, go with the 5 stitch cable, if you want the ribbing bigger go with the smalle 3 stitch cable.  If you need more detail son the cable (I didn't put specific instructions on how to do the cable, just said to do a three or 5 stitch cable) LMK and I'll add that, too Smiley

Hi Turtlemama!

Do you have pictures of either of your finished Kirsten Dunst hats?

Gracias Cheesy

Turtlemama: I just saw this movie this weekend and I love this hat. Thanks for the pattern. I printed it out. Would you mind filling in the details about the cable? I'm not super familiar with them. I did it one time in a class, so I understand the idea, but just need a little more info. That would be awesome. Thanks so much!

I followed Nuno's imdb link, and here's the best picture I could find of the hat close up:


I'm guessing, but it looks like the pattern repeat would be something like [p1, k1] x 3, p1, k4, and the cable is just a c2f every few rows...

Jenner -- you'd just put two stitches on a cable needle, bring them to the front of your work so they over lap, knit the next two stitches and then knit the two on the cable needle. You can use a dpn if you don't have a cable needle or just let the two stitches "hang out" in front if you feel lucky. I'm curious to see how these turn out... You guys should do a movie hats knitalong!

i don't know if this helps any, but i saw the movie and was very fascinated by the hat through the whole thing. i noticed the edge of it was definitely selvedged and it looked like an extremely tiny gauge, like the way a tshirt is, obviously implying it hadn't been hand knitted. i would assume it was done flat and stitched up, there seemed to be a jog.

I'm confused. How do you cable three? I've only done even numbered cables...

I think you put 3 stitches on the cable needle and hold it either to the front or the back (depending on how you want it to twist of course) and the k3 and then knit the three from the cable needle.  That was my plan.
