Yarn: Bare Naked Wool Stone Soup DK, color Marble
Needles: US 5s (ribbing) and 6s
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
