This is the Ripon Hat by Rachel Coopey from her Toasty collection.
As you can see, it looks great with a nose-ring!
It is about to have a little bath in wool wash before I send it off to its rightful home with Christine.
Those will block right out :)
This is what comes of knitting hats on dpns and trying to "transition" in between the cables: uneven tension - tsk!
The yarn is from JC Rennie - Unique Shetland I think? It only took one 50g ball to knit this hat - amazing!
So Christine has enough left to knit herself another one... or add a pom pom?
It would look fab with a pom pom!
Now all I have left to finish from my holiday projects is my crochet blanket... um, maybe not this week!
