I've got a question for all you knitters on my flist. In the interest of combining my two favorite pastimes--knitting and fandom--I want to make the adorable knit hat that Veronica Mars wore in "One Angry Veronica."

The pattern looks pretty straightforward (although I'm a little iffy on what kind of decreases to do to give it that sorta poofy look on top, so advice on that would be welcomed). My big question is about the yarn. Any of you guys recognize it or know of one that looks similar? I'm thinking that it's some kind of variegated bulky wool, yes? Or maybe it's super bulky? If you want more pics of it, there's a gallery of caps from the scene here.

One more day 'til I leave for Sundance! Whee! (Ask me if my laundry's done.)

I'm guessing super-bulky in stockinette with maybe 2-3 rows of k1p1 rib on the edge? I think it must be some kind of boucle-ish kind of yarn judging by the unevenness of some of the stitches.

I'm wondering about the top... I wonder if there's some small decreases toward the top and then a seam, to make it poof out that tiny bit.

Yeah, it is kinda lumpy--the boucle-y thing is a good call.

It actually seems to poof at the crown very much like the Cunning Hat. In fact, it almost seems like the exact same pattern, only with the pom pom and earflaps left off. Now if I could just find a similar yarn.

*goes off to pore of the Takhi web site*
