Hello, fellow yarn enthusiasts! Let’s take a stroll down memory lane to when I first picked up those knitting needles – yep, I was a bright-eyed 15-year-old under my mom’s tutelage.
Fast forward 30 years, and here I am, still in love with the click-clack of needles and the magic they weave. Ah, the memories of those initial scarf projects – the never-ending rectangles that seemed to stretch into infinity!
But as the chilly winds started to blow and everyone around began to wrap up, I found my true knitting calling: hats!
And honestly, in these unpredictable weather times, is there anything more satisfying than crafting a snug, stylish hat?

Are you one of those confident knitters who tackles new techniques with ease, but admits to being afraid of cables? This hat was designed with you in mind – it is a great introduction to cables. There are not too many of them, so there will be plenty of relaxing knitting to enjoy.
I really like the ridges on this hat! It looks really nice with the variegated yarn. It is a simple project that creates a satisfyingly squishy and stretchy hat that will keep you warm on those cold days.
