Cable embellished hat
A visitor from last year here; published by bigskyknitting.com last December, this hat got lots of wear since. Knitted in New Lanark Aran Heathers, although the colour escapes me at the moment, with the leftover yarn I had from my Patty Sweater (Rav link). It worked up quickly and was fun to knit once Chriss helped me to work out the way to increase stitches for the beginning of the cable without getting a massive hole at the base :) The crown is shaped through pleats and then rapid decreases toward the centre to keep the edge perky and the top flat.
