Since returning from Ireland, I've been obsessed with cable knitting. I'm designing a sweater and have been swatching and knitting for it and other cable-y projects.
Winter is upon us and I thought a nice hat with cables would be in order. I found Declan's Hat on Ravelry and thought it would be a quick knit.
I used some Evergreen Aran yarn from my stash and in short order I had finished. I knit the medium size because the instructions said the adult large size made a hat for a very big head. I have a small head. The circumference wasn't the problem. It was the depth of the hat.
Oh well. Maybe I'll be able to find a child who would like a great cable-y hat.
I did learn a trick for knitting cables from the knitting workshop I took with Carol Feller. Sometimes the first stitch of the reverse stocking stitch after the cable is loose and sloppy.
It really tightened up my cable knitting.
