Finished Object: All Ears Hat

I love how the Must-Have Cardigan and all of its cables is turning out, but stockinette stitch is great for some instant gratification.

This All Ears hat is for an upcoming baby whose colors will be brown and green.

My size 5 needle is occupied with Must-Have (and I didn’t have my ChaioGoo when this was cast on), so I tried this one on size 4s. My gauge matches, but I knew that the fabric was turning out a little dense. Casting on 80 also seemed to make a larger size that I intended, but after three false starts I decided to see it through.

A quick knit with cute results.

To the brim

I was thrilled when I heard that my sister-in-law wanted a knit hat for her birthday. Even with the party a week away, I knew it would be enough timeā€”hats are quick. I immediately departed to my favorite LYS and acquired an alpaca/wool blend in a neutral tone. Six and a half days later, it was wrapped and ready.

The Cabled Chapeau features a brim that posed some doubt during construction, but that worked out in the end.
