Hunter Hat

Here is the newest project off the needles. It is the Hunter Hat from Tin Can Knits. I rediscovered my copy of 9 Months of Knitting  while cleaning up the house and decided to give the pattern a try.

I am happy to report the Hunter Hat was a pleasure to make. I made the adult size using Paton’s Classic Wool in Jade Heather. The pattern was great, and I enjoyed the varying cable sequence. Really easy to read and memorize. I have to say I am a tight cable maker so the hat did come our a little snug. I am thinking some aggressive blocking will get me a bit more room. As of right now it is great for an older child/adolescent. IMG_9844[1]
I was really feelin’ the yarn. I loved the semi-solid color mix or greens with a hint of blue. Also the stitch definition was awesome. It made my cables really pop. This yarn was pretty affordable too for  100% wool. I found it at Michael’s for ~$5. Don’t let the price make you think it is a rough to work with; it is pretty soft on the skin.  Could this be my new go-to budget yarn? Stay tuned as I bought 2 more skeins of the same yarn. (fingers crossed all goes well)

Until Next Time,
