Japanese knitting
I'm lost.
I've seen this hat
and now it's my must to have number one. Actually I decided to knit 3 of them for my family, and even my husband said he would wear it!! :rofling:

The problem is - I have no idea, where to look for the pattern. I spied this is 1999/10 issue "Let's knit series" but can't find anything more.
I even found it on Japanese Amazon, but my Japanese is not good enough to buy this!!
The true - my Japanese is deep below zero level.
Hopefully my English is better.

I'll be thankful for any directions. Information in English about Japanese knitting etc

Lost on the Japanese deal, but I will suggest that you go to www.knittingpatterncentral.com and look under 'hats' for this or a similar hat

yup i would do a search for an earflap hat pattern. the pointy top is easy enough done by just doing some small diameter knitting once you reduce it down to the 5 or 6 stitches that make up that point. i think pretty much any ear flap hat can be doctored to look like that.

thanks for the interest, and help.
The problem with every earflap patern is I don't want to look like a teletubi (not to mention my husband ). So I'm not sure where to start the point.

I'm still looking ....... starting with rebecca's link.

Oh, sorry! I just had a vision of me trying to convince my 6'7" tall husband to wear that hat. It would add, what?, at least 3 inches to your height?

Hey, do it in red and green and you've got a really cool Christmas hat!

Or.... save it for next year done in various pastel colors and go for the teletubi thing!!

You are very lucky to have such an accepting husband!

Oh, if you find the pattern in German or Dutch... let me know and I'll give you a hand.

Here's a pointy hat. Maybe you can just add earflaps?

Nice find Femmie.

Looks like it might have a single-crochet edging done around the bottom rim, doesn't it? Optional, I'm sure, but it does make a neat edge.

...OMG Rebecca! LOL! That hat's awesome.
