I found the pattern on Ravelry. It's http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/kmays-eyelet-lace-elegance-hat

This was my first hat, and it was very easy! I always thought my first hat would be knit in the round, but this was knit on straights and seamed up.

Very nice hat!! Those yarns that do all that from one skein are so cool. Good job.

Ronda,

What a beautiful hat! Great job!

I am working on a hat now that is knit on straight needles and seamed up at the end. Can I ask how you did the seam up at the end? I'm not a Ravelry member so I couldn't access that pattern. The pattern I am using says to do an overcast seam and I saw a link on how to do that (it looks like a regular sewing stitch to me), but I wondered how you did it?

:muah:

Let me see if I can get you the pattern. It was free on Ravelry, but I think she has a website or a link for a PDF file.

Yes, here's her website: http://kodymayknits.blogspot.com/2006/10/kmays-eyelet-lace-elegance-hat.html

To seam it up, I followed Amy's video here: http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/knitting-tips under Finishing techniques. It's the mattress stitch. I am NOT a sewer, so I was worried, but honestly, I can't see a seam at all! With that variegated yarn, I was worried that it would show, but it IS invisible!!!

Thanks so much - I just finished up my first hat...a basic pattern but I am pretty happy with how it turned out! I'll post pix once I figure out how to make them smaller...

Hugs to you! :hug:
