What advice would you give someone starting this project? Here are the directions for the tendrils for my hat..I used a size 4 needle, I didnt like how fat they came out with the 8 needles..personal choice. Tendrils: Using size 8 needles, cast on 12 stitches. Knit into the front, back, and front again of each stitch on the needle. 36 stitches. Bind off purlwise on the next row. The piece will be very curly. Cut the tail, but remember to leave it long enough to use it to stitch the tendril onto the hat. Repeat the tendril pattern for the second tendril, using 24 stitches instead of 12. Your increase row will yield 72 stitches. Stitch the tendrils onto the hat, near the base of the I-cord for a natural pumpkin effect. Weave in all ends and block to measurements.
