Over the holidays I knitted this slouchy hat -- only took a couple days -- love that! The pattern was pretty easy from Azure Knits:http://azknits.azure-m.com/2010/11/free-pattern-quick-cable-slouch-hat.html Made a couple mistakes while I was decreasing (oops!). Oh well -- with all of the cables it might not be that noticeable Smiley

The cables look gorgeous and I really can't see your problem with the decreasing though, so I guess the cables really did cover it.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

wow this is gorgeous.

and cables like this are suprisingly easy Alexus, patterns will give cable as C, a number and either F or B. when a pattern says C*F, you divide the number by two. slip the first half onto a DPN and let it hang to the front of your work while you knit the other half of the C number; then you pull the hanging stitches and knit from right to left as you would have originally done... for instance, C6F means you put 3 stitches onto the DPN, knit the next three, then knit the first three. it will feel a little tight, but this is normal and why using dpns is actually a bit easier (imho) than using cable needles.

if it's C*B, you put the stitches onto a dpn and hold behind the work.

there's an amazing tutorialon here:


but I used a 1970s craft book to master it lol.
