Eric’s been asking for a hat for a while to match the scarf I made him last year. I had plenty of the same yarn left over, so when I saw this pattern, I knew it would be perfect.
Cables are pretty and functional–they make the fabric thicker and a lot warmer. Here’s a close up of the cabling at the top, which decreases to form a star pattern.
Pattern: Habitat by Jared Flood
Yarn: Cascade 220
I love this hat! I was initially daunted by all the cables, but I used Grumperina’s tutorial on cabling without a needle and it made it speed by and a lot simpler. The length is also just right to pull over your ears but not get in your eyes.
I may have to make one of these for myself, with some matching wristwarmers.
