I just finished this hat for my best friend. I got the pattern from my Knitting 2008 Calendar. I used Cascade 100% Peruvian Highland Wool, the color is Coral. This is the first hat I have ever knitted. The only problem i had was with the double pointed needles. I can't seem to keep the tension between the last stitch and the first stitch on the needles. Any suggestions about that? Otherwise I LOVED making this hat.

Very nice job! Two things about knitting with dble points: practice!! and (trying to figure how to word this) as you make your rounds, move the stitches around on the needles every few rows to avoid the "ladder" look that often happens between needles.
