I saw this somewhere and can't remember where. It may have been in an ad from the newspaper or on the internet, but I can't find it. It looked like a regular stockinette stiched hat, but the edge instead of being ribbed was lacy. It was so pretty and feminine. Any ideas where I might find something like this? I don't think I know enough to do the lace edge on my own yet. I looked in Knitting Pattern Central already.

Jan...I wrote one...PM me your e-mail address and I will send you the pdf. :D

ETA...oops, here is a photo, so you can see if you want it or not! It's written for a baby but I'd be glad to help you resize the pattern for an adult if that's what you need. :D

oooh that is pretty. are you having it published?

11-17-2005, 12:35 AM
Thanks! No, I'm not...but I wrote it up so I wouldn't forget how I made it. :D

Would you mind sharing it with me also, it is perfect :) I would need it in an adult size.

Pulllease :)

No problem...you'll have to tell me two things though...your gauge (choose a yarn and knit a swatch!) and what you want the finished circumference of the hat to be. PM me that info along with your e-mail address and I will get it to you. :D

Oh I love it! I assume you measure your head to get circumference.. can you tell me where to measure? Is it from base of head to front as the hat would fit? I will get the gauge measurements, too! Thanks!

Jan, just around where the bottom edge of the hat will lie.

You guys can be my adult-size pattern testers :D

YAY :cheering: :cheering:

Oh Julie!!! Me too Me too!!! I've been searching for a few hat patterns because I need to make a few and that would be perfect!!!! I'm not sure of my measurement - I wonder what the standard woman's head is? :??

11-17-2005, 02:31 PM
Well, mine is 22"...seems average..... ;)

11-17-2005, 02:41 PM
I wish I had a tape measure but I trust that you are average!!! :cheering:

You're in trouble now, Julie. We're ALL going to want this. :inlove: Maybe you'll need to rethink the publication issue!?!?

Do you think this hat would work as a chemo cap, or is the lacework too "open"?

In any event ... I want to make one for myself and I'll try it out as a chemo cap, too.

I'm PMing you now. Thanks! :thumbsup:

Okay, here's an update: I think I'm done with the pattern, I am just testing it myself now to make sure it's not too far off. Good thing, because the one I started this afternoon was waaaay too big. But the one I have on the needles now seems to be the right size! :D

I'm really excited because I had considered submitting it to headhuggers.org before but hadn't gotten around to resizing the pattern. Y'all have given me the push I needed! :mrgreen:

11-17-2005, 08:27 PM
Julie - I'd say you have some test knitters too!! I'm a newbie so I'm sure I'll have questions!! I'm so excited!!! For you too!! :cheering:

11-18-2005, 12:47 AM
Okay...it's ready! I just e-mailed the pattern to those of you who asked...except the ones who didn't give me their e-mail addresses! ;) It's a PDF file so I can't attach it to a PM...I'll need a real e-mail address. :D

I love this hat! I have been lurking for a while, but became a member just so that I could post! I would love to test the pattern out for you as well, for myself or for my 4 year old DD.
