I made a Basic Cable hat for my friend for Christmas, here it is from the back....
and here my roomate is modeling it, she's trying to look like the girl in the book
I think it's a little small, but the girl I'm making it for has a small head so I'm hoping it will work out OK!
And in case you are wondering, the giant orange thing in the picture is something my roomate's dad spray painted to match our curtains
It's not the most attractive thing but it's a good conversation piece!
