Holiday Stashdown 2010 - exhibit 4

Wow, I'm really banging out gifts this weekend! I present to you, the Hermione Hat.

This is made from about half a skein of Patons Classic Wool in Jade Heather that I bought probably about a year ago with no planned use. I LOVE this pattern. It was so easy to read and understand, and I finished it in a day (granted, it was probably 4 hours or so of knitting). My row gauge was a little off, so I didn’t do as many rows of ribbing or as many repeats of the cable. I did decide to be picky and continue the eyelet/cable repeat through the crown, but I’m not sure if it’s really visible. I will definitely be making this hat again.


  1. Gorgeous hat! Half a skein, you say? Hmm...

    *runs off to rifle through the stashlet*

  2. It looks great! I've seen that pattern before and really like it. One day...

  3. What a great hat! I might have to keep the pattern in mind for MY Christmas knitting!

    Your free theme is a brilliant idea, something that I could definitely get behind, I love when things are free, especially when you have technically already paid for them:)

    Loved seeing all the Christmas gifts you've finished, way ahead of the game:)

  4. I'm jealous of the gifts you've finished! I have a couple of small stocking stuffers done, and that is it! egads!

  5. Now this would be very cute with the pink ribbon logo in the middle ... you've got some cousins that might would wear this! ;) xo Kathy
