Haven't knitted it, but it's an interesting pattern. I know I've looked at it before & thought, hmmm, that's cool...

We can't help you answer your questions unless you ask them... :teehee:

that hat is pretty cool, but i'd want a big bow to tie under my chin!

OK, here are my questions:

Can I make the top with only 2 needles - no cables? If so, how.

It also says to use round needles and I only have straight. Is that such a big deal?

I'm ready to start knitting.

You *could* do the brim/visor section on 2 needles, but where it says: "Join in a round.", you'll have to use either a set of double-pointed needles or a circular needle.

It also says to use round needles and I only have straight. Is that such a big deal?

Yes, in this case. Unless you wanted to take the time to change the pattern to include a seam at the back (or somewhere...) because you'd *have* to have a seam if you want to work on straight needles. I suppose it's do-able, but... :shrug:

Good Luck, whatever you decide.

Thanks for the answers.

May be I'll put it on hold for now. I'm also not sure that it'll fit me because I've got a lot of hair. I might be better off knitting a dreadlocks cap!

Back to this again.

It's getting near spring now and the sun is starting to shine. I ware sunglasses but you must all know how the sun likes to say hello from all the corners that your glasses don't cover.

Well, I thought may be to knit only the band, visor and icord, without the cap. Is that possible? And if so, can someone please translate the pattern for working on two striaght needles instead of round. I also don't quite understand the icord attachment instructions. For example: "Note: Pick up one stitch for every stitch as you work around the edge. The visor will not hang properly if this edge pulls in!" Will it make more sence once I start knitting it?

Thanks guys.
