Happy Hat! Heee...
Well lookit that - kick your own ass and a pattern comes out! Wonder what else is in there...
I finally got over my fickle self, kicked my own ass, and boop! Out came this hat! Nothing super spectacular, just a fun little cable-y thing that keeps my noggin nice and toasty.
It's pretty simple and straightforward really, just some cables separated by knits and purls. But I did cross them on the 7th row - and with absolutely no planning or foresight - end up with 7 cables around and 7 cables up, too. Hence the Lucky 7 Hat!
Oh, and I also worked the decreases so the cables would stay the same width all the way to the final cross. Neat, huh!
Will the Symmetry Fairy leave a quarter under my pillow now?
The variegated colorway doesn't show off the cables as nicely as a solid would, but it's so happy and cheery, I don't care! And it was WAY more fun to knit than plain ol' rib. I only used about 54 grams of yarn, too, so a pair of couch slippers may come out of the overs.
Last but not least - this tutorial by wendyknits shows a much better way to cable without a cable needle. It's less fiddly than Grumperina's tute, which I used on the Weenie Mitts.
Well, that's about it! Keeps me warm, makes me happy. Good times all around!
