I thought this would be a quicker knit but I have not been knitting as much during the week these past three weeks. I hope to change that as there are a lot of things I want to finish and new projects to start.
I love the way this turned out. When I tried it on, I loved the way it hugged my head. It feels warm and safe, and that’s just what I want for this specific hat.
At first I thought I’d try to block out the way it turns up at the bottom, but I don’t trust my amateur blocking skills and I’d be sad if it got loose. So it doesn’t look as pretty laying on it’s own. But it looks great on a head and that’s what matters most.
What makes this hat special is the honeycomb pattern around the bottom. This yarn is not the best to showcase the cables that create a beautiful pattern. But it was more important that I met my friend’s color request. To achieve the pattern, I had to do sixty cables per row, every other row for a total of 14 rows. At first, I thought I made a bad decision. But I found my groove quickly. And it’s so worth it.
