FO: Cable Hat for Myself

Earlier this year I knitted myself another hat. You might remember me posting about my first hat here, which was back in 2012. I really do like my dark purple hat, but it’s just not warm enough when it gets cold and windy here, so I decided on a thicker one with a nice cable pattern, of course another DROPS pattern.

As I have a dark purple winter coat and a bright pink parka I thought this light purple/lilac would work well. I actually love this colour, ever since I used it to knit some gloves for a swap.

I love the cables on this hat and how they create this gorgeous crown…just a shame that when I wear it I can’t really see it.

Here are some shots of me wearing the hat:

FO: My Purple Hat

Last weekend I took some time out of my queue knitting and finally knitted myself a hat. I’d picked the yarn ages ago, after I had bought a new purple coat, and I absolutely love the colour.

I love the effect of the pattern, parts of it looks like leaves.

It was actually a really quick knit, I finished it in only a night and some of the next day.

The yarn is, as always from the guys at DROPS, as is the pattern.

And here are some shots of me wearing it, my husband was good enough to take them for me.
