Hey! I'm taking a trip this Christmas and, having already knit myself a luxurious scarf out of Plymouth Baby Alpaca Grande, want to make a hat to match (Chicago winters are cold!). I've got a matching skein of yarn but, as a novice knitter, am hesitant to risk it on hat patterns designed for worsted weight! Also, watchcaps and the like look really bad on me -- I'm hoping to make one of those winter caps that is roomy as well as warm, meaning something with a generous brim that doesn't totally outline the shape of my skull (and flatten my hair in the process :shrug: ).
Can anyone point me to a good pattern (preferably using circulars rather than DPNS) that would help me make the perfect hat for my scrumptious scarf?
