Finished Hat

It's getting chilly here in Chicago, perfect for wearing my finished cable knit hat.

It was made from a free pattern from Purl Soho, Traveling Cable Hat. I made it out of the yarn I dyed myself and wrote about here. It was exactly the type of project I needed between my other projects and holiday preparation.

I did need to keep the pattern in front of me but once the cables were established it was pretty easy to figure out where I was in the pattern. The only issue is that my knit gauge was a little loose, but the hat looks o.k. a little slouchy so it's not a big deal. 

Now onto the matching mittens!!
