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.
