Finished my first, onto another by request :)

The pattern is here:

http://www.redlipstick.net/knit/martext.html

With my own worsted weight yarn (Patons Decor), I had to actually cast on 96 stitches instead of 72. This provided for the shown tigh-fitting hat.

I should have also added about an extra 8 rows before the decreasing. Could have used more room for a larger turned cuff.

I also decided to k2tog tbl instead of ssk for the decreasing. Couldn't see how a traditional ssk would preserve the twisted stitch pattern called for. End result looks the same to me.

congrats!! Did you, like me, have a problem at the turning row? Following the instructions causes a hole at row 23 (the place the hat is turned). I tried my own turning method on the second cap I'm doing and I think it came out even worse.

Maybe there's no way to avoid this. Look like I'll have to duplicate stitch it or something.

I believe the ssk she specifies in the pattern is actually a k2togtbl.
