Any pattern that calls for circular needles can be done on straight needles. The benefits of using circular needles are that they accommodate the large number of stitches better and your arms and hands don't get as tired holding the circular needles like they would using the straight needles.

In all my years I have never used circular needles! Determined to try but if I don't mange them, could this pattern be done on straight needles? Please someone let me know.

Pattern stitch for this hat, resembles crochet cross stitch. I try to find pattern stitches that are knit and crochet somewhat alike in appearance. I definitely will knit this hat.

I am thinking of making this into a messy bun hat -- so where the decrease to the crown is -- you wrap a scruncie (I use a crochet hook over the elastic band) What do you think? If I do it -- would you like to see the result? I am AZTinker on ravelry.

I don't know how many ways I can say stunning. With family in the Pacific Northwest and in Minnesota I think I know what they are all going to get for Christmas. Again, can I say STUNNING!!!!!

Do you have a pattern for this as fingerless gloves please

Hello Ruby, we have many fingerless glove patterns on the site. Once you locate the category, you will be able to see all your options. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I made this hat several times and love it!! I had a request for this hat in chunky wool and made it with COzy Wool (6) and size 8 and 10 needles. I only used 56 stitches and 2 repeats of rows 1-12. It came out great, I would post a pic if it let me here.

Oh I would love to see a photo of this hat you made using chunky wool

Debwalsh, you can upload a picture now. Curious to see your hat! What an interesting pattern, like latticework. It seems to be a little more complicated than your basic ribbed hat pattern, so I guess if you're up for a challenge it's perfect. The instructions say if you change the color it could be worn by a man - has anyone done that? Or left off the pompom?
