One of my very first ever blog posts was about a purple cabled hat that I knitted for myself. It was, and still remains, my very favourite hat. Emily, a lovely friend of mine, has always admired it. She is a very stylish lady, so her admiration is quite the compliment! For her birthday last year, I promised to knit her one, in a yarn of her choice. She mulled it over for a while, and eventually chose a greeny blue shade in Cascade 220 Heathers. This was my knitting project of choice over Christmas, and I enjoyed it no end. It is one of my favourite knitting patterns. Sixteen big slouchy cables are simple to knit, and very effective. I hope that Emily's hat will keep her head as warm as my hat has kept mine!
PS: Details, as always, over on Ravelry.
