Find your gauge, pick your size, and you're good to go!

That's what I thought the first time I saw this site, but if you try it out, it makes sense.

I used the basic measurements on that site to make this hat--basically one hat knit with a provisional cast on, then I flipped it over and knit another hat attached to it. One fits in the other. Kelly's done this too, and it makes a nice double thick hat--maybe perfect for your trip. You push one up inside the other and attach at the top.

I made this hat with the pattern and am working on another like the one Ingrid posted. Don't let the math part intimidate you.

Jan, yes I love your hat-what yarn is that?

Those douible knit hats are cool, too. Too bad it doesn't get could enough here to need one. It's supposed to be 78 degrees today. Sigh. I want a real winter! :rollseyes:

Thanks Joe and Hilary! I use Lion Brand Wool-Ease (http://www.lionbrand.com/cgi-bin/yarnInfo.cgi?yarnPage=1419766) yarn. I "think" the color was called dark rose heather, but I'm not positive.

Hope i spelled your name correctly. The tote bag i made , i made a
scraf and hat to match. Only my tote bag is for picking up my
dog deposits, when we take a walk together.
Are you referring to this.
