This hat is a quick knit on US Size 11 needles with Super Bulky yarn. The oversized style is fun and super slouchy and very warm!

This pattern is a great way to learn some new cast on and bind off techniques. I would consider this pattern to be intermediate, but it is actually quite simple once you've practiced these new skills on some scrap yarn. The knitting itself is all garter stitch with short rows, the hat is knit on its side and then seamed together. Don't let these new skills intimidate you, they are quick to learn.

This pattern begins with a provisional cast on. A provisional cast on is used so that there will be live stitches on both sides of the work at the end. These live stitches will be kitchener stitched or grafted together to form an invisible seam. The provisional cast on is not at all difficult to learn.

A tutorial can be found here
or, if you are a visual learner like me, try this youtube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3J-sUx_whE

The hat is knit in long wedges made of short rows. If you are unfamiliar with short rows, it is a technique used to create shaping in a garment by turning the work and knitting in the other direction mid row. It is a little unnerving to begin with, but once you understand how a wedge is created, the pattern moves along quite quickly, as it is comprised of only the knit stitch.

To learn the kitchener stitch to seam the hat together, try this tutorial ..it's not difficult either. http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer04/FEATtheresasum04.html

In the end, if you decide these new skills are just too much, don't despair! You can still knit this hat, I have included instructions for you as well!

Ready To Ship items will ship the following business day after payment clears.

Made To Order items will ship the following business day after the item is made. Currently my made to order turn around is 1 to 3 weeks.

If both Ready To Ship and Made To Order items are purchased in the same transaction, all items will ship together when the made to order items are finished, unless otherwise arranged.
Shipping fees are based on the weight of the item in its packaging. Items shipped in the US weighing 15.9 ounces or less are sent via first class mail. Items weighing over 16 ounces are sent via priority. International sales are shipped via first class international.

For smaller weight parcels I most often use polymailers or poly bubble mailers. Larger orders will be sent in a box. Priority parcels are usually sent in tyvek envelopes or USPS priority boxes.
International customers are responsible for all fees associated with shipping to their respective countries. Orders that are shipped to countries outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information.
I'm sorry, no, as it is against the law. All international orders will have full value declared on customs forms - no exceptions.
