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 crownPin It
