The pattern is from the 2008 fall issue of Knitscene. It’s called “double cap” by Kat Coyle. Its warm and comfy and I love it! When I started I didn’t get the right gauge but continued on anyway (terrible idea, ask any knitter how ignoring gauge usually turns out..) but, despite that, the hat fits great! I used Bernat Cashmere blends, about 2 and a half skeins, and size 8 needles. It was the first time I had ever used this yarn but it is wonderful! The hat is soft and cushy, but has a nice weight to it.
I love the color and the way it fits, and I got it done just in time for the 75+ degree weather in Dec around here….lol Now I should probably work on some Christmas presents…. 😀
