I finally figured out how to knit in the round using two circular needles. it seems everyone is pregnant so I am making hats for my sister and coworkers.

This pattern I made up myself, i love cables. The first try was too small so I added another cable and 12 sts.

My coworker asked for a gold and black hat to match an outfit after I gave her a monkey one to match the outfits I gave her.

I used what was left for a hat for my sister. The colors are Iowa Hawkeye colors.

To make the cabled hat, I cast on 72st and knit 6 rows of 2x2 ribbing, then i made 6 cables 4st wide with 8st between. There are 7 rows between each cable twist and at the 3rd and final twist I started k2tog after each cable. (it help hide the decreases) I continued decreasing at a rate of six per row until I had four stitchs that I knit for another 4 rows before decreasing off and puuling the tail string to the inside.
