Eye of the Storm hat

Eye of the Storm is a fun project that has been a long time maturing. I started thinking about this cable a long time ago, and worked on them on and off for a while.

Eye of the Storm hat

I bought 2 "one of the kind" skeins of Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage in color "French Grey" a while back (like 2 years or so... yeah, I buy too much yarn!) and with the idea of my new collection "Frugal Knitting" I decided to put my big girl pants on a finally worked those cables into a very nice hat, if I may say so myself! And who better to model it than my beautiful sister?

The brim of the hat is worked in garter st, which I love and I believe makes a nice change from ribbing. The rest of the hat is worked in a combination of cables and reverse stockinette st. The cable is quite easy, if you know how to work them. The hat is also moderately slouchy, as it seems a popular shape these days. It can easily be made into a fitter beanie by starting the decreases sooner!

Ok, more pictures? Let's do it!

Pattern is now available as an individual download as well as a part of the "Frugal Knitting" collection.
