Knitting caps an easy way?

I just finished knitting a Beret for a friend of mine, the first for me. Anyway, I used two 16" circulars, a size 1 & 2. Well, before I finished I was needing to switch to a set of dpn's and I hated it so tried two 24" circular's. When I got down to a smaller number of stitches, I then had to use the dpn's.

Josh Bennett West Village Cardigan

Have dusted off the needles after a prolonged hiatus and have just finished a cardi by Josh Bennett from Rowan website. Left out intarsia-seemed a bit youngish for me.

Favorite Team Logo, Fair Isle style

I am knitting in the round a mohawk beanie for my friend, who's going through chemo, with her favorite football team's logo (GBPackers) on both sides (left/right).
I am fairly good at intarsia on a flat (back and forth) piece. But as this is a beanie for her soon to be bald head, I must put it together in the round.

Big and Tall Sweater (4XLT)

I am looking for suggestions or a pattern to knit myself a sweater. As the subject suggests, the sweater needs to be sized 4XLT. I have searched Ravelry and other sites but I come up with nada. I am not skilled enough to take a pattern and rewrite it to adjust for size. I'd love a hoodie. Does anyone have any suggestions? I can't be the first to have this problem, can I?

Facebook Group

I hope I'm posting in the correct area. Can anyone tell me about the Facebook group? Over the last month I've sent a couple requests to join the group, but it never gets approved. Is the group still an open group?
It has been at least a couple weeks since my last request.

Thank you
