Does any one know of a pattern (or link) for a kids hat, Knitting it "top down"? thanks
I was just about to search for top-down hats. Here's my preliminary search for such hats at ravelry. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/search#photo=yes&craft=knitting&view=captioned_thumbs&availability=free&pa=top-down%2Bin-the-round&sort=popularity&pc=hat You can narrow it down more. I'm thinking of this one http://throughtheloops.typepad.com/through_the_loops/2008/01/beret-recipe.html but I don't know how much experience you have with hats and it's not recommended for a first hat knit.
There are 28 pages on Ravelry. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/search#craft=knitting&view=captioned_thumbs&query=Hat&pa=top-down&sort=best&pc=hat
Thank you, I've been around here for a long time...just haven't posted in awhile
Thank you too Jan, I did a search on Rav myself, and found this page....I am specifically looking for top down knitting

You can specify top down in Construction under Attributes. It took me quite a while to figure that one out. LOL
If I'd noticed how many posts you have I'd have realized you've been knitting for a while. I'll blame it on this cold that's making my face hurt...yeah, that works.
I filtered for top down on that link. There may be a few misfiled, but most should be top down I think.
grams you're funny
This is a great example of "why" I haven't been on this site..I asked for a pattern....I get sarcasim...so, sorry about your face, Happy Knitting
Oh... and just let me add something here, the reason for a "top down" knit is because I have been asked to knit a hat "quickly" ( I have no measurements to work with..) due to the fact that a 10 year old boy has had is leg amputated to cancer and is now under going chemotherapy.consequently losing his hair...
I'm sorry. I seriously did miss how many posts you have. I wasn't meaning to be sarcastic at all, I did try to help find a pattern. Why you want to knit top down isn't any of my business. I hope you can find a pattern to your liking. Please don't let me cause you to avoid this site.
:?? We are just friends here and we sometimes joke around. That's what makes it fun to be here.
I'm sorry about the little boy. That makes sense why you'd want to do a top down hat. I suggested Ravelry because there are so many patterns. You didn't mention that you'd already checked there so I had no idea.
How about these?
