Cabled Cap

For this hat pattern from the Fall 2009 issue from Vogue/Designer Knitting, I went down on needle size (3.5 and 4.5 mm) to compensate for my loose knitting, even though my head is bigger than the intended size of the hat. I think the size turned out OK, although I wouldn't mind it being slightly looser. I used the leftovers of Berroco Ultra Alpaca I had from the Dimishing Rib Cardigan project. This is clearly one of my favorite yarns, combining the softness of alpaca with the sturdiness of wool. Too bad I have not seen it available anywhere in Finland.


  1. That's a pretty hat! Nice color!

  2. Your hat is beautiful! Nice colour and yarn. Isn't this pattern great? I've made it twice and I want to make a third.

  3. Very pretty! I love the purple.
