Ah.. thanks Jan sounds like a good idea.. I finally finished the hat before I got back for this answer and the roll was nice... for my first hat I think mine rolled for about 10 rows.. or so.. Not at home to count... but a nice smaller roll would be lovely.
Now if I did decide to do a rib after the roll.. do I cast on with even or odds then? if I did a k2 p2 or k3 p3.. I love the rib look... I just really lose count... but I will try till I get it.... The one time I tried.. well made my own patter.. I ended up with all kinds of stitches... some Knit.. the next purl.. some ST st... it was a mess... made a sweet boarder.. but wasnt what I wanted. Till I looked further and realized I needed to knit knits and purl purls... now that is a funny story... I thought that meant to knit what I JUST knitted.. and not what the stitch was on the new side... shakes head... am learning
Sorry rambling away
