Double Trouble Cables

Posted by 2ton Inspired on February 20, 2008

Being both photographer and model is hard. You’d think that after taking a dozen or so there’d be a better picture then this, but there isn’t. I either look sleepy, drugged up or blurry. I suppose I could have waited until I had better pictures but I couldn’t wait to show this one off.

A few weeks ago I saw a girl in a cable and ribbed hat with a mini pom-pom and a brim. Everything I like in a hat. A pattern had been forming in my head since then but I wasn’t quite ready to make it (other things on the needles you see). But after attempting to make the Urchin Beret from Twinkles Weekend Knits and having it be too small I desperately wanted a new hat and decided it was time… even though the yarn color didn’t match any of my current scarves. (This winter I decided it was time to go matchy matchy for scarves and hats.) I love how it turned out. The sheen of the yarn adds a little fabulousness to it and I think I might have to make a matching scarf.

I think it looks like the one I saw, except for that one was probably knit on smaller needles since the cables were more defined. When I make this again I’ll probably go down a needle size too. It fits me, but I like my hats a bit more snug. I’m going to try to find time this weekend to write up a pattern (and get better pictures!)
