This is the hat that is my basis for the Petal Hat. I just wasn’t finding a pattern for a simple cabled hat that i liked, so i improvised this hat and it turned out pretty well. I wish i had been thinking ahead and written the pattern down, i just kinda went with the flow when i was making it. The one rule that stayed with me was to make sure that i increased the each round by the number of stitches that i initially made into the beginning circle. The yarn i used, and love, was Naturally Caron Country yarn in a forest green and a 5.0mm hook. I made this hat for one of my best friends and i think the color suits her. Next time i will add a button to the center of the hat to see how that fits or if i should just use an adjustable ring a close the center……anyway, here are the pics.
