all cables

It seems that right now every new thing I like on ravelry has cables. I guess I’m in that mood now and I just HAD to make something cabled.

Fortunately both me and my cute little boyfriend needed new hats for winter so I sat him down and made him choose which pattern he wanted. He was’t completely sure about the yarn when we ordered it online but since I also needed a hat and had chosen a pattern with the same yarn weight I gave him the possibility to make his hat in “my” yarn instead. Lucky for me, he fell in love with the one we chose for him and I get my own!

First out is Fredriks hat!
The pattern is a free one on ravelry, and the yarn is Esquel, a super cozy one with 60/20/20 of merino, silk and llama fibers from Louisa Harding.
This was such a fun knit that I finished it in two relatively short sittings over two days!
You can find my ravelry project page here.

Next up is my own hat! I haven’t finished it yet but I’m already in love with both the yarn and the pattern. I’m using a regular Cascade 220 Heathers, and this pattern is also a free one, from Purl Soho. My ravelry project page is here and I will be posting more photos there after finishing! For now you get to see my work in progress.
