My friend is having a little baby boy. I knew she wouldn’t have time to knit everything she wanted so I told her to pick a pattern and yarn and I would knit her a baby hat. She chose the I Heart Cables hat, but left the yarn and color up to me as long as it was 100% merino wool. I used the absolutely fabulous Malabrigo Rios yarn for the first time. I’m in love. Soft, squishy, lovely to knit with and the tonal color is beauitful (a navy blue called “Paris Night”).
If you’re new to cables, this is a great hat to try out. It was almost mindless it was so easy! The decreases blend right into the cable pattern, which is another thing to love about this hat. I’m pretty sure I’ll be knitting up another one of these bad boys. It was also a good excuse to break out my new pom pom maker. Yay!
