I just wanted to post this hat i made a couple weeks ago that i have been wearing every day. It is extremely fun to wear, and it was my first experience with cable knitting (which is way easier than i thought it would be) The hat can be knit up with about 1/2 a skien of red heart chunky or a whole skien of lion brand jiffy. It is just plain seed stitch with a 8 stitch cable in the center. I just knit a long rectangle and then folded it over and sewed up the sides, i am sure you could do it on the round as well. A great "quickie" project!
If you have any questions just ask!
