Finished Project: Cable and Eyelet Hat

It’s my first finished project of 2014!  It’s a Cable and Eyelet Hat.

Cable and Eyelet HatI changed the pattern a bit, omitting some of the straight knitting and purling rows between the cable and eyelet detail in favor of repeating the cable and eyelet rows an extra time.  I like the way it turned out and think would have been even longer if I did it the way the pattern was written.  I think my brim is shorter too.

This is the top.  I changed the decreases ever so slightly so as to not be knitting the two stitches together at the end and beginning of the next row.  I still think it looks pretty.

  1. Hello!

    I absolutely love the look of this hat and I’m currently teaching myself to knit, so I thought I’d give it a try! I found the original pattern, but I like the lack of empty space yours has more. I was just wondering if you might be able to let me know what your pattern changes were? Thank you so much, I’m excited to continue exploring this blog and your knitting projects now that I’ve found it!
