After getting the hang of knitting in the round and doing simple decreases, I thought I'd experiment with making my own hat pattern.
I saw the basket weave/checkerboard pattern on a scarf at Article Pract and decided to adapt it to a hat.
Hope the directions make sense... feel free to email me for clarification.
Cast on an even multiple of 10 sts (eg. 80) on a set of round needles.
Start knitting in the round with a 2 x 2 rib (K2, P2, repeat).
Once you have about 2" of rib, work one round of knits.
R1: * K5, P5. Repeat from * till end of row. Make sure you mark the beginning of the row with a stitch marker.

Okay, so I've been checking out teh whole iPodding thing, and I found a podcast for knitting. I'll post a link below. I haven't listened to one yet, but I'm curious... if anyone here downloads it and listens to it, please put up a review.
Here's the link: http://www.knitcast.com/
hello! ...help is much appreciated!!!
I'm an expert knitter who has been asked by a guy to do a commissioned hat for him.... in two colors. There are not enough men's hat patterns out there! I can design something if i have to, but i'd rather at least see some interesting possibilities first... all i can think of are either blah...(like taking a ski cap and doing it in stripes).... or a little silly... (like a pointed Andean hat with ear flaps, which works on some people but not on others, if you know what i mean). Any suggestions, pleeeeeeeeeeeease???? :D

At long last a picture of the simple scarf made for my sister...I still have to sew in the zipper of the cycling aran and photograph that.
I'm one sleeve into a traditional aran, but have promised tea cozies to the boss' wife.
To make matters worse (or more exciting), or my knitting less focused, a dear friend has asked me to design some simple men's sweater patterns.
