Birthday hats!

The girl had a birthday recently, and because she wasn’t home to celebrate, I had to send a little birthday box with a few extra gifts. Over the holidays, I’d said I would make her a yellow hat, but then one of the nieces claimed it, so I got another skein of the yarn and a pompom. And what would do but to get a second skein and a second pompom, because then they could be mix and match hats??

The gold is the July hat and it was super fast to knit. The black is Winter Walk, a hat that I saw on Sarah’s blog and fell in love with, and I knew I had to make one even if it involves darn cables!

It’s a little rougher than I might typically pick, but you can get a small skein for around $9 and that’s enough for an adult-sized hat plus maybe a small pompom. And the stitch definition in the cables is so good.

Which combo is your favorite?

  1. Great hats! I love the look of the white pompom on the yellow hat. Even if I can’t wear yellow, myself.

    And I love cables! Glad you enjoyed knitting them, at least a little. I find that cables are easiest on big yarn, so hats are perfect for cable knitting.

      • It’s such a happy color combination! 😀

        I do love knitting cables. Such a small little thing can make a huge visual impact. I love knitting lace too, though, so maybe I just like patterning in general.
