Christmas cables

This hat knit up so fast, it’s the perfect Christmas gift!  It is only in child’s size – it barely fits my nine-year-old, a snug fit but I imagine it will stretch a little – but if you had a lot of kids on your gift list, you could knit up a whole pile of these in a week’s time.

Pattern:  Traveling Cable Hat from the Purl Bee

Yarn:  Purl Soho Super Soft Merino in Paprika Red (super bulky 100% merino wool – 87 yds) – I used almost all of one skein, but had enough left over at the end that I was never worried about being able to finish

Needles:  US 11s (ribbing) and US 13s (body of the hat) – 16″ circulars, and then US 13 dpns for the decreases at the crown
