Coffee and Cables: Knit Cable Hats (Cable Eye Candy Ahead)

Cable eye candy! Back in the fall, I checked out a Rowan Yarn Tasting at one of my LYSs, The Knitting Diva. I entered the raffle, and a few days later I got a call that I had won a skein of a new Rowan  yarn. (Yes, I definitely squealed on the phone. I have no shame.)

The Rowan yarn that I won came with a pattern, and Alex was flipping out over it. With just one skein of  yarn I was able to make a hat for him and a pair of gloves for another friend. (More on the gloves later.)


Pattern: Vermeer Hat & Gloves Pattern by Rowan (FREE download)
Yarn: Rowan Pure Wool Superwash in Toffee



My friend Jessica spotted the Toffee hat on my Instagram account and immediately requested one for herself in another color. I was planning to visit Jessica in Philly a few weeks later, so it was perfect timing. Luckily the hat works up quickly, so I was able to finish it in just a few days.

It's so interesting when you make the same pattern using different yarns. You can really see how different the yarns are, even when the gauges are similar. This hat, for example, didn't pull into the middle quite as much as the brown hat did.

  1. This hat looks so warm! Of course, I may be biased since it's a cold day here in middle America and nearly any type of hat would look warm :) I'm off to check out the pattern....
