You give me hope that I might be doing more than straight in a few months, that hat is wonderful, I'm really excited now, I just thought I would try knitting but now I'm hopeful, your making hats within months, great job.

wow
Anise, I can't believe you are a new knitter. I"m still intimidated to do cables but will be trying them soon and your beautiful hat has really inspired me to do it. Are you sure this isn't a hard one?

I love it, esp the colour. It's beautiful.

Well, you know, it's hard to say if it's "hard". I didn't think it was hard--you get into a rhythm with the pattern and there are no tricks or surprises. Once you get the hang of cabling it really isn't so bad as long as you pay attention

Thanks for the compliments. I'm glad I got the nerve to share the pattern

Beautiful hat!

I've been looking for a really good warm hat to make for my brother, who is a pretty large guy. I'll probably have to leave off the pompon, though!

Can you give us an idea of the gauge or the finished size, and also the specs for the yarn you used, so that the pattern can be adapted for an adult?

Thanks!

Umm...I'll do my best I don't know anything about gauge to be honest with you. I don't really know how to determine gauge.

I can tell you that I have a good size head and this hat fits me (its big on my daughter--she was just my model).

I used a worsted weight wool yarn.

If you were to increase the number of cast-on stitches to the next workable size, it would be 132 stitches, which would probably work though it might be a bit roomy. I guess it depends on how close to the head you like your hat to be. Of course to combat this, you could do 132 stitches on size 7 or even 6 needles to get the right gauge. Similarly, you could do 110 stiches on size 9 needles. I wish I could be of more help with regards to that--it's just not something I know much about.

If I lay the hat flat is measures about 10 inches across the bottom. I am also a very tight knitter.

Is that helpful to you at all? :thinking:

That's very helpful -- thanks!

It gives me a better idea of who the hat will fit, what yarn to try, and all that. I'll go ahead and do some test swatches based on what you said, and I'm sure I can come up with a reasonable-sized hat.

Thanks again!

Braided hat
Hi Anise,
I love this pattern and started knitting it. I have a question tho......there are 3 'plain' rows between front cable and back cable, but then only 2 plain rows between the back and the front one again. Is this the way its sposed to be??

Granny :XX:

I can't wait to make this hat, I just printed out the instructions.
Right after I finish my 1) shrug 2) dh's socks & 3) afghan.
Maybe before the afghan....

I never did cables so Ihope I can do it.

I'm not sure I understand your question.
