Cabled Hat Finished

It was an unexpectedly snowy Sunday yesterday, so we decided to take the boys (our dogs) for a walk in the snow. It was so beautiful out. I finished this hat a long time ago, and I was waiting to have the matching scarf done before posting about it. You know, show the whole matching set. Well, with all my WIPs now, I think the scarf might be an over-the-summer knit. So here's the hat in its full glory, snow-covered and keeping my ears warm and toasty.




Yarn:
Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky in Cream, 1 1/2 balls.

Pattern: My own. I made up a cable and bobble pattern over 20 sts and repeated it 4 times around. The decreases at the top aren't great looking, but I don't care.

Verdict: It's a fun little hat that keeps me warm and looks good. For about $9, you can't beat it.

I haven't decided on what scarf pattern to use. My plan was to do a matching pattern, but I really like the Irish Hiking Scarf and Sharfik.



My little snow bunnies, Toby and Oscar.
