Once I actually broke open my new ball of Sublime merino, finishing the hat was a snap:
Despite all the cable work, it’s a very simple pattern and a very quick knit. Much like the scarf it coordinates with. This project was definitely also one of those cases where the yarn contributed to the ease of the project. It’s a real pleasure to knit with, and not at all prone to splitting, felting itself up to another piece of yarn, or inadvertently working itself into a tangle, so things just run smoothly along and before you know it–you’re done!
Although it’s not reversible, I did design the hat with the intention of having it mimic each view of the scarf, so you can see that there are two variations on the main cable motif:
I’m putting the finishing touches on the pattern so expect to see it available for purchase sometime in May or June–just in time for those of you who like to get a head start on holiday gift knitting!
