Cormo Cabled Hat

Greenery Hat by Lilith Parker

Ravel that bad boy.

 

This used about 225 yards/102 grams of my handspun worsted weight Cormo chain-plyed (3 ply) yarn.

 

To get a fabric I liked in this yarn, I had to knit at a tighter gauge than the pattern specified, so I had to add 2 cable repeats to the circumference and one full repeat to the length of the hat. I also made the top of the hat cleaner looking (totally personal preference) by taking a cable twist out at the top.

 

This is a very attractive pattern and a fun knit.

 

The wool was grown in Lee, MA by Alice Field of Foxhill Farm, scoured, carded, spun, and knit by me for someone who appreciates shopping local. Here's the fleece before. I highly recommend Alice's fleece!
