Cable Knit Hat

I’m so proud of my new cable hat. I keep showing it off to Greg, “Touch it, isn’t so soft and amazing?” Conquering cables is a lot like mastering brioche. Once you get the hang of the process, it’s easy. When I first started knitting the cable hat I was really frustrated and had to go to my yarn shop multiple times for help. I kept loosing count or making knits into purls or vice versa.

I have my eye on trying a larger cable knit hat next. The cables are much larger and only have 4 or 5 twists in the whole hat. Above and below my hat and garter stitch scarf I made for my sister out of beautiful Baby Alpaca from Cascade Yarns.

p.s I know I look goofy and depressed in my hat photo but it hasn’t stopped raining here for three days.

  3. Katy – I’ve been knitting for years and I have yet to make a cable hat. I do have a half finished cable sweater though. Actually it is closer to 95% finished. All the pieces are done, I just need to put it together. I should do that…

  4. My mother and a couple other people would love for that day to happen. I just like doing too many things. Can’t seem to focus on just one.

    Thanks Chelsea.
