Bless you Kate!

I have spent ALL day -  most of this weekend in fact - looking for the pattern for this hat.
I'd seen it on a knitting blog a few days ago. Couldn't find the knitting blog again, and neither could I remember the exact name of the hat. 

Not great for googling for a specific pattern!

I will now add this to my ever-growing post- Christmas knitting pile!
Thank you again.

I am contemplating knitting it for my boyfriend, except, well, you know, the knitting for boyfriend curse. But it is so beautiful, that perhaps I'll knit it for myself!

Lovely job Kate!

It took you four nights??? Really??  I consider myself a fairly proficient cabler, and it took me about four hours last night to get through the first 18 rows.  Only 66 rows to go.  I hope I make it before Christmas!

I started this pattern using Brown Sheep's Cotton Fleece and Denise US6 needles.  Good thing too!  I gleaned from the yards/weight from each yarn that Cotton Fleece is about twice as thick as the Rowan Calmer. (173 yd/50 g for Calmer vs. 215 yd/100 g for Cotton Fleece)  Usually I can't stand working with thin yarns and small needles (I'm impatient; I need instant gratification!).
I've gotten through two pattern repeats so far.  My last final is today, then I've just one paper to write, and I'm done! (for this semester)
Hopefully I will finish this weekend.

actually, it took four days, but keep in mind i tend to be a little...um...manic when it comes to finishing a project i'm excited about Roll Eyes  i'll work on it until i can't keep my eyes open...

I hope that you ace your final, kick butt on your paper, and post a pic when you are done with Shedir Grin

I loooooove this hat.  The way the cables intertwine is almost hypnotic.  I would not recommend attempting this project until you learn to cable without a cable needle, and it's not the easiest hat I've ever made, but the results are fantastic.  I also used Calmer, in a dusty blue color.  It's a gift for my best friend--I hope she likes it as much as I do!

Finished this about a week ago.  It took forever to knit even using the thicker yarn!  From looking at the other pics, I think I prefer the look of the suggested yarn.  I doubt I'll make another though.


Sorry for the crappy pics!


The decreases only ended up with six points b/c I casted on 96 stitches instead of 128.


This pic shows the rather obvious holes from the increases.  Oh well.


Overall I think it turned out okay.
