I used my leftovers from this cabled sweater to knit a hat in one evening – I think the yarn shows off the stitch definition beautifully. It’s wonderfully lightweight, but warm at the same time – my only problem is that it’s so light, it seems to have trouble tamping down all of my hair, and instead is inclined to slowly slip up and off To try to combat this, I’ve blocked it to stretch out the top a little bit.
I knit size small because I wanted a close beanie fit, instead of the little bit of slouch that shows up in some of the pattern photos.Pin It
