This is the hat I started making BEFORE I saw the enlarged, color photo of the cable knit hat I have been stalking. I made this one up with the tiny black and white newspaper photo as inspiration. It's a bit different, but I kind of like it.
Since the pattern is my own I would be more than glad to share it with you! I'll try to get it all transcribed today. The idea for this hat also came from the simple ribbed hats I made for Nick's brothers and posted recently. I wanted to make more hats like that, but with a little, er, twist.
