Since I'm enjoying making cable blankets now, I wanted to find a pattern for a cable hat to go with them. I found this pattern online, and loved it! Today I tried to make a hat using this pattern and the green yarn I used for the ivory and green cable blanket.
The pattern is a bit tricky, but I think it's beautiful. Unfortunately, the yarn I used is a bit too thick to be practical for a baby hat. I think I got the basics mechanics of this hat down, but the finished product is thick and stiff and, in my opinion, too bulky for a baby. I will certainly try this pattern again, but next time I'll use a baby yarn that will be nice and soft and yield a hat that a baby can actually use.
I did want to share the pattern, though, because I really think its beautiful.
