i just finished mine tonight, too. i loved making this hat, even though i did screw up quite a few times. i'll just keep this flawed one for myself-- i'm planning to start another one tonight (in a nicer yarn) for my boyfriend's sister.

Looks great to me, Hejira! Cables look nice and uniform; and that's a sweet pom-pom!

I agree that its a little short (maybe I have a big head though..), I made it for my boyfriend who has weird issues with things touching his ears so I thought it would be prefect for him, unfortunatly it kind of look like a beanie on him     .  so I think I'm going to make it again with longer cables and a foldable brim.  I also did it on dpns because all of my circulars are 24" and I found that a lot easier than I thought it would be.

Do you find the hat to be big enough around? It's just a bit short, right? I like the pattern a lot and would like to make one, too!

thanks, kimbabwe  Smiley

and karma- my head is on the small side, and it fit me perfectly. then my boyfriend, who has a huge dome and a big thick mop of hair, tried it on and it also fit him. i did add some length to it, but it's definitely big enough around for those who have normal or larger sized heads.

it fit perfectly around, I kind of messed it up at the bottom, so its not super tight (I tried squeezing it on 24" circulars instead of the 16" it called for!).  So next time I'm going to follow the directions!  Wink its just a bit short.

Crud!  Now I wish I'd read this thing before starting-- I'm 4 rows in from the first decrease and making the hat for a guy so I need some more length.  Frogging time to get back to before that decrease and add another cable.  Bleh!

Thanks to everyone who has paved the way and given us advice on these new patterns. I'll definitely add some length when I finally make one. My project list is ridiculously long!!

I finished my second one today (yeah, I have a final tomorrow, but I've been studying nonstop since Thanksgiving, what do you want from me?) and I did 6 cable rotations and the length turned out perfectly. Somehow I managed to drop a stitch at the end, which I haven't done since my very first scarf, but I caught it and fixed it up make-shift like and you can't tell. I think on my next one I might make the ribbing around the bottom twice as long so I can have a fold up brim. This pattern is so great! It's total instant gratification, but it looks so impressive when you're done!

I was thinking the EXACT same thing when I finished mine! It fits my little head perfectly, but I like folded brim bottoms on hats. If you do this anytime soon, let me know how it turns out!!!  Cheesy

Here's my Basic Cable!  It's a Christmas present for my dad.  I used a different yarn (I got it for free from my mother... I think she bought it in 1983 to make a jumper that never got finished for my little brother!)  I also added an extra six rows of ribbing at the bottom so I could have a folded-up brim, and added an extra round of the cable pattern before starting the decreases to make the hat longer.
