I’ve written up and had tested the Cabled Snow Hat, and it is available for purchase through Ravelry. There will be more on the Ravelympics sweater on Wednesday, but for the moment, let’s hear a word from our sponsors (i.e., me):
Cabled Snow Hat: US $1.75
This hat is perfect for both men and women and is perfect for playing in the snow and keeping cold air off of your head. The hat brim is high enough to stay out of your eyes, and the earflaps mean your ears will stay warm and toasty, even in cold temperatures. Lots of heat is lost through the head, so this hat will keep you (or a loved one) warm.
The hat knits up fast and makes a great last-minute gift, and at only about 110 yards (half a ball of Cascade 220 superwash), this hat is also a great stash buster!
Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash (or 110 yards of worsted weight yarn)
Needles: US 7/4.5 mm dpns and 16″ circ.
You will also need: a tapestry needle and a cable needle
Gauge: 5 sts/7 rows per inch stockinette
Finished Size: Will fit most adult heads (cable pattern is very stretchy)
