Here is my first finished knit of the new year! A cabled hat for Tyler. I was originally going to use a pattern for this one, but then changed it so much that it pretty much became my own. If I can recreate it, I’ll write it up as a pattern for ya’ll.
Tyler’s hat is made with RYC Cashsoft in color 517. Knit with a 2×2 rib for the brim on size 4s with size 6s for the main body.
It features a lovely 8 stitch cable and rather interesting decreases on the top to keep the shape. (Why there is a dark line running through these photos, I don’t know…)
He didn’t reject it immediately and posed for pictures without quibble, so I’m calling it a success. The color is much richer in person, but it’s hard to get color accurate pictures with a squirmy three year old. Imagine it more the color of hot chocolate and you’ll be about right.
I finished the hat mere hours before taking a header off the back porch stairs. I’ve got a lovely bruise and a limp to show for it. It’s a good thing my parents didn’t name me Grace…
ETA: The images keep disappearing and I’m not sure why. Sorry…
