FO: Testing a Hat Pattern/Adventures in Cabling

Standard

Here’s my second FO (finished object) of the year:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pattern: Proton Stream Convergence (Not Yet Released)

Yarn: Patton’s Classic Wool Merino in Chestnut Brown

Needles: US size 6 bamboo 36″ circular for ribbed band, US size 8 bamboo DPNs for rest of hat, cable needle

Start: January 23, 2011

Finish: January 31, 2011

Comments: This was such a well written pattern!  Love the end result. I am painfully slow at knitting cables because I am very unpracticed at them. I only have somewhat large plates, so when it blocked it turned into a beret.  Which is all the better for me.  I adore berets.  I will certainly do this pattern again in the future.

  1. Just joined Ravelry, been knitting less than a year. Really Love your knitted hat looks good on you. I would love to do this one in red. Hmmm some day.. I have not yet tried cables. Made a crochet scarf and knitted scarf, that all. So I am on to my very first project of a Lacy Shawl. Will see how this goes.
    Thanks for showing off your knitted beret hat.
