I discovered the joy of knitting cables late in my “knitting career.” For years I deliberately stayed away from knitting anything with cables, assuming they would be too difficult for a bang-it-out-and-get-it-done knitter like myself. That theory got quickly put to rest with the discovery of this pattern on Raverly (Cable Hat). I’m now hooked.
The hat my daughter is wearing is one of several cables hats I made this past fall. The blue cable next to the smaller infant cap were a gift for my neighbor. I knitted the cable for her 3-year-old. Then, not knowing what to do with the remaining yarn, I knitted a matching hat for her newborn.
