I made this hat with a lot of help from Donna,
It is my first attempt at circular needles.
Hooray Connie! I love it. I really like that variegated yarn. I made Mom's in a solid purple, but I think I like yours better. Didn't you love working with the circulars? There's no stopping you now!
Good job! That hat is really sweet.
For your first attempt at Circular Needles, I'd say you did a tremendous job! I love the colors.
How did you do that sideways cable? Knit it separately and then pick up stitches along the side and knit up? It looks wonderful (and warm!)
That hat is really cute.
Exactly, Here is a link to the patteren for the hat. It is on my list of things to do "next"...LOL
Misty, I love it in varegated yarn too - now all I have to learn is the provisional cast on and the Kitchner(? sp) stitch..
Here is a link that might be useful: hat with cable band on circuluar needles
Thank you everyone I'm glad you like it.
The varigated yarn is Red Heart 0310 Monet.
Donna, sent the site for the hat to me.
Judy, I did make the band first. Here's the site.

I called you Liza on the other side -- guess it is a small world - I may well send you that e mail, although you gave some pretty specific instructions on the other side......
