Sigh...it's too true.

I have been dying to make this, but knitting the first cord two stitches per row made me think, "this would be so much easier in crochet!"  So here's knitty's version:


And here's mine!  With flowers!  (I frogged my first one and made a wider version):




This one follows the pattern below.  But now I'm wondering if I should make the flowers bigger...

(Later...)  Ok, I made the flowers bigger.  I can't stop myself from tinkering!


The flowers are like before, but sc 8 in ring, then do eight 5 sc petals, then eight 7 sc petals behind the first row.

That's really pretty, and suits you.  I saw that pattern over on knitty, and wanted to make it; would you have any tips (for a non knitting, beginning crocheter) how you did it?

I like the flowers too!

I'm sure knitty would appreciate it if you stopped stealing their bandwidth.  This is a common and accidental thing for a lot of people to do, but it really sucks for the hoster when the pictures are posted elsewhere but the original site.  Instead, you can either download these to your own server or put up a text link to the pictures. 

Onwards to crochet things: I love it when people convert knit to crochet (we are versatile!) and your coif is definitely cute and feminine.

Sure, here's a pattern (I'm redo-ing my first one to make it a bit wider):

Lions Brand Homespun yarn, size P hook (the big gray plastic one)
Gauge: 12 rows = 4 inches, 17 stitches = 6.5 inches

The numbers are even Sc's (1 sc in each sc)
The *'s indicate increases (2 sc in 1 sc)
The &'s indicate decreases (1 sc in 2 sc)
At the end of each row (except the last), ch 1 and turn.

Row 1: Chain 2, 3 sc in second ch from hook
Row 2: * 1 * (5 sc)
Row 3: 1 * 1 * 1 (7 sc)
Row 4: 7 (7 sc)
Row 5: 1 * 3 * 1 (9 sc)
Row 6: 9 (9 sc)
Row 7: 1 * 5 * 1 (11 sc)
Row 8: 11 (11 sc)
Row 9: 2 * 5 * 2 (13 sc)
Rows 10 and 11: 13 (13 sc)
Row 12: 3 * 5 * 3 (15 sc)
Rows 13 and 14: (15 sc)
Row 15: 4 * 5 * 4 (17 sc)
Rows 16-31: 17 (17sc)
Row 32: 4 & 5 & 4 (15 sc)
Rows 33 and 34: 15 (15 sc)
Row 35: 3 & 5 & 3 (13 sc)
Rows 36 and 37: (13 sc)
Row 38: 2 & 5 & 2 (11 sc)
Row 39: 11 (11 sc)
Row 40: 1 & 5 & 1 (9 sc)
Row 41: 9 (9 sc)
Row 42: 1 & 3 & 1 (7 sc)
Row 43: 7 (7 sc)
Row 44: 1 & 1 & 1 (5 sc)
Row 45: & 1 & (3 sc)

Fasten off, and weave the loose ends in with a needle.

Flowers (make 2): Chain 2, then sc 6 in the second chain from the hook.  In the front of each sc, sc-ch5-sc.  For some reason, whenever I do this, I lose an sc and end up with 5 petals Smiley  Slipstitch to the back to secure, then chain for about the length of the cap and then fasten off.  Weave the ends in, then stitch to hat.

If you need more clarification, please let me know!
