Great jobs on the hats everyone. I really, really love this pattern...as illustrated here, it's so versatile and looks wonderful with so many different kinds of yarns. Wow. I think I know what my next quickie project will be. Thanks for the inspiration all.

such cute hats everyone! Great job! I want to make one too! To bad I've never made anything but a plain scarf (not even a knit two, purl two scarf!) and its going to take forever for me to get Stitch 'n Bitch Nation from my libary (its on hold)!

I think next time I make this hat, I am definitely making it with the folded brim. It looks good! I really like that color blue too.  Grin

Okay, so I have not completed mine yet, but I did my very first cable (ever!)  yesterday!

It was pretty darn funny how much I anticipated doing the first cable round -- I was intimidated and just wanted to get past that first cable! And then, when I got to it, I realized that the directions were very straightforward and I did it! I did it! I am no longer a cable virgin! I've now done 3 rounds of cabling and when I showed my BF, it was the first time he's really shown awe over one of my knitting projects! I told him that the cables were easier than I thought they'd be and he said he was going to pretend he didn't hear that, because he just wanted to be impressed.

I'll post a photo when I'm done!

I think I'm out of the loop but can someone tell me the pattern used for this hat. It's really cool!

Sure, it's called "Basic Cable" and is in the book, Stitch and Bitch Nation.

I'm done!

Used Wool-Ease in off-white... added a few rounds of ribbing, but not enough to really make the brim foldable -- next time I would do the required # of ribbing rounds or do more than I did this time around, since I don't really like the way it looks this way... I also added a 5th repetition of the cabling pattern (so a total of 6 extra rounds).

I also attached a silver snowflake (from one of those holiday garland chains), by super-gluing it to a button and then tying the button onto the hat.


Overall, I really like this hat!

That's adorable! I love the snowflake!!!

I'm almost finished with my second one, in olive green for a friend. Grin

I finished mine a little bit ago - and it has finally just gotten cold enough to wear it here!

I used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, most of a ball of each color, which makes it soft and happy.  There are more rows to the inch than the gauge in the pattern, so I just did a couple more cable repeats, but the stitches across worked out about the same. 

In case you think that the Cashmerino is a little spendy for you, take note: the purple I used for this hat was the left-over from making the "Head Hugger" pattern (and there was still a little leftover), so it's like to SNBN projects for the price of one!

I finished this last night (no pic yet. sorry... will try to do one tomorrow after I have put away all of the edges)
I loved cabling (once I figured out how to read the pattern!) and am proud that I  have one more skill under my belt!
The funnest part for me though of this one was using the yarn my folks brought me back from New Zealand: it's a merino/opossom blend! Way cool!
Will post pic asap...!
