I am a fairly new knitter and found the pattern very confusing and 'awkward' so after the fourth time unravelling it back to the ribbing I decided to just do a sort of basket weave top and then reduced for shaping. It worked fine (even though it's far from perfect design/pattern wise) and it honestly is SUPER comfy on.
I will make another to these dimensions but with my own version of the top.

I'm a loose knitter so I used size 8 needles - it turned out a little snug, so I might add a few stitches if I make it again. It was fun to make - I never got bored. Whoever dreamed this up is quite a designer. I didn't realize the ribbing had the slip stitch business until I was putting it together, but it still looks great.

Love it! I used "Barley" medium weight Vanna's Choice. I don't love the scarf, but I'm going to use the same funky cables and make wristlets or mittens!

Simple knit, but I used black so the pattern is not so obvious. Would use a lighter colour next time.

I made this hat and a plain scarf to match. It was easy to knit but I think it shrunk after washing so I am making it again and will make it longer this time, but I really liked knitting it and wearing it. The next one will totally cover my ears. Connecticut winter this year has been BRUTAL.

I didn't really enjoy knitting this hat all that much BUT it turned out wonderful! It's soft and squishy and very cute. Next time I would cast on a few more stitches and also knit on circulars.

This was my first cabled project. It was super easy and cam out great! I'm normally a crocheter, but I'm learning to enjoy knitting too :o)

Nice pattern, but will knit it in the round next time.

Thumbs Up for the "Lauren Hat"! Reviewed by Chelsea Anderson on 2010-06-30 *****
I made this hat for my sister last Christmas, and she loved it! The fit in the ribbing is a bit snug, and the pattern is initially tough to follow (it was one of my first projects using cables and "make one" increasing), but it turned out really nicely, and I would definitely consider making another one!

This is a great pattern for men and women hats! I am on my third mens hat, blue and grey.
I am knitting with four needles and have to adjust the pattern for knitting round.

I also made this hat for a friend which had chemo treatment. The nice pattern and the not too tight shape is very comfortable. This hat I knitted in different green hues.
