It took me quite some time to knit this cable hat. I admit that I was distracted by Agent Mulder and Agent Scully's investigation, and redo several rows of this hat. But...it was all fun.
This hat is a good practice for cable knitting as well as left-side decrease and right-side decrease. I used U.S. #7 for the ribbing. If I didn't do Norwegian knit and purl, the ribbing would be tighter. Then I used use US. #9 double point needles for the rest.
The pattern is from a knitting book published in Taiwan called "All about Knitting". Instruction written in Traditional Chinese. There are many wonderful hat patterns in this book. However, a I noted before, the editor should have double checked the instructions. Luckily I figured something out and did the math by myself.
Not bad isn't it.
The cable hat looks even nicer with the bottom fold up. Oh, I almost forgot to mention. This hat is knitted with the Ichibankan worsted yarn I blogged previously.
The X-files theme music composed by Mark Snow is still ringing in my head. I'm up to Season 2, 7 more to go. Anyhow, I will continue working on an original pattern.
