Warm & Woolie Hat!!

It is getting cold pretty quickly in Mass!! So, I had to knit a new warm cap. I especially needed one that would cover my ears because....well, BRR!

So, this is the hat I decided on. It was a SUPER easy cable pattern, 18 seconds to sunrise. I used Moda Dea's Tweedle Dee yarn, which is a 'shaded' yarn. I modified the pattern as follows:

I purled one row on each earflap before the “row 1:knit” I used the Patons wool in complementing colors together (1 strand of each) and did one round of half double crochet with size J hook. Finally I braided the ties instead of i-cord.
I love it!!
