Knit: Cable Hat

It’s next level cold here in Canada and I’m sick of it. I just had to put that little complaint out there. We also just had another 5+ inches of snow—ok that’s it, promise.

The only benefit to the chilly weather is my increased drive to knit. Benefit, you ask? I’ll take what I can get at this point! One of my favourite projects thus far is this cable knit hat. I can’t actually wear it or give it away for reasons you’ll read shortly, but I love it non-the-less and will try again soon. “Third time’s the charm” is the expression I like to use to describe my knitting ventures.

Let me be real with you for a minute: This hat didn’t turn out quite as I expected. At the time I was not yet introduced to the miracle that is 4-needle knitting, so the back seam is a little dodgy. I would recommend knitting in the round to avoid the sketchy seam that I so carefully hid.
