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.
