I have made a few hats for the boys but it's the first one for me! I decided against the ear flaps though :p Pattern: Cable Staghorn Whalebone Hat Beanie Toque by Margaret McInnis, free on Ravelry here, size medium Yarn: 2 balls of Cashmerino Aran by Debbie Bliss I did a provisional cast on to start with the cables then knitted the ribbing to fit. A compulsory pompom and I'm ready to brave the cold. Ok, that's not true... I'm never ready to brave the cold!
