Hi all I have taken this wonderful hat and converted it into a toilet paper cover. I had a request for one and the lady's son is a big VW fan. I have done one in Blue with the logo in white and one in white with the logo in blue

Circumference?
I'm knitting this hat for my boyfriend for Christmas, but with the pattern, it comes to 18 in around, and his head is 22 in around. so i cast on 110 stitches rather than the recommended 90, will this turn out ok if i still follow the same reduction pattern? Thanks for any help! -Devon

For this pattern, when it says "Continue in this fashion" does that mean "k2tog, *6k k2tog" for the rest of the knit rows or continue decreasing to "k2tog, *5k k2tog......"k2tog, *4k k2tog"...etc etc.. Thanks!

Boston Hat
Hey everyone! This is a great simple pattern for a men's hat - I love it! I'm making one for my dad for Christmas and just finished knitting the Red Sox logo in - it looks pretty good, but I did an awful job with the intarsia so the logo is thick and kind of pops out a little

I'll post a picture when I'm done! Until then, really stupid question - does anyone have a good link for how to decrease using DPNs? It's probably easier than I think, but I just...don't get it yet haha. Thanks everyone!

Hi, I love this hat, have made it a few times, but one picky person would like it a bit tighter, how do I do that without ruining the nice puckering on the hat?

Hi,

I found your site today purely by accident while doing a search for men's hat patterns. I couldn't find anything in the stores I liked. I used to do a lot of knitting several years ago and am getting back into it again. It's amazing how much I forgot !!!!! Your site is terrific and can help me with many of the things I'm am anxious about attempting - like using double pointed needles. I have never used them and think this may give me the courgae to start. You have a great site !!!! I'm going to start simple, but will definitely be back for more complex patterns.
Thanks
kat

size of hat
i just finished this hat. i'm a brand new knitter and this was my first attempt. I have a small head and this hat just came to the top of my ears. i followed the pattern exactly. my 17 year old son wants one of these but he has a much bigger head than mine. so what do i need to do to make it bigger? I don't even know what you mean when you post the gauge sizes. i read on one post something about increasing the cast on stitches to 120, which i understand, but what did you mean by 20 X 24 gauge? If I use 120 stitches, how do i decrease?

You would dec the same, but use more sts between the k2tog. Start with k10, k2tog, then one less stitch between the decreases.

eta: Now that I've seen the pattern, it uses markers to show where to dec, so with 120 sts place them every 12 sts and follow the directions.

Circular Pattern
Hey, guys.

I saw this crop up a couple times in the comments, so I took the liberty of "translating" the pattern for use with circulars. You can find it here.

Note: I have a small infatuation with twisted rib, but if you just want your standard 1x1 rib, just go ahead and *k1, p1* for rounds 2-8.

Let me know if you see any errors or if you have questions/comments!
