In January this year a good friend asked me to make her a hat that she could get her ponytail through and could also pull down to her neck like a cowl. So I started thinking and came up with this design.
My friend picked the colour and she decided on cotton, as she finds wool too scratchy and too hot. I decided on using a cable pattern, which makes it especially pretty I think.
I knitted holes for the string at the top of the hat to thread through the cord, see the pictures below.
My friend loved the hat/cowl and used it on a trip to Iceland a few weeks after I finished it for her.
