Whilst waiting to cast-on a new pair of socks for the UK Sock Knitters KAL on Ravelry, I thought it was high time I knit myself a snazzy new hat. Looking through my patterns, I decided on Kyla, a nice cabled hat that can be made in a sleek beanie style or a more slouchy hat. I went for the beanie option and chose some Stylecraft Luxury Merino I had leftover from knitting a cardigan a while back.
Despite using a cable needle, it knitted up quickly and I'm really pleased with the results.
The yarn has a nice sheen to it and really shows up the pattern well. Lets hope the weather stays cold, so I can get lots of wear out of it!
And it was all finished in time ready for me to cast-on my Icicle socks. For this pattern, I'm learning how to knit with beads. Scary stuff, but hopefully the effect will be worth it!
