Crimson Cable Cap

I made this hat the other day thinking it might be a nice chemo cap to give away.  A friend at my Thursday knitting group mentioned the yarn might not be soft enough since it does contain about 25% wool. Decided to give the hat to my friend's almost-15-year-old daughter. I was hoping she might find it "cool" or fashionable.  Today, I was leafing through a catalog which showed up in my mail box out of the blue the other day and, wouldn't you know, I found a hat which is quite similar.  Click the LINK HERE and see what I mean.  The clothes in the catalog are quite stylish.   The pattern can be found HERE.  I made this hat once before but I added extra to the ribbing the first time around so the bottom of the hat can be folded up to make a nice brim.  I like this pattern since it's a great use for worsted weight yarn and it knits up really quickly.

definitely a cool hat -- love the cabling. Wish I could wear hats -- they don't like me.

Funny... I've decided hats don't like me either... hee, hee. They look rather silly on me, but they sure are fun to knit and you can be done with one rather quickly!
