I made up this cable hat pattern after getting a good deal on some chunky yarn. Sadly, the LYS that sold it is going out of business.
This koala is from Jean Greenhowe's Knitted Animals. I'm ususally not a big fan of sewing knitted pieces together, but I think his final cute-ness was totally worth it. He'll get a bow-tie after I find out if the recipient is going to be a baby boy or girl.
