Mondo Cable Cap for Nicole

This is a must knit for anyone who likes hats and cables. Bonne Marie's patterns are wonderful and her newest releases with Mondo Cables are hitting it out of the park for fall. I knit this from the mini mystery KAL.


Nicole didn't know what it would look like finished, but I was barely into the second clue when she claimed this knit for herself. Clue 3 finished it up quickly. This yarn would benefit from wet blocking, but she's not parting with it just yet. It wasn't off the needles for a minute when it was on her head. It's still there. She wants to wear it to school tomorrow so blocking is going to have to wait a bit. Holding the Terra double with the Kid Silk Haze gives this hat a level of luxury I wasn't able to photograph, but the KSH takes it up a few notches.


DETAILS:
Pattern: Mondo Cable Cap by Chic Knits
Yarn: Terra - Light Indigo (60% merino/20% baby alpaca/20% silk)
Kid Silk Haze - light smokey blue
Yardage: 190 yards


This hat's gotten my 15 year old style maven's seal of approval. I'll knit her another one in dark purple for her to match her school colours and definitely one for myself. It was a fast, fun and easy project.

A gorgeous hat for a gorgeous girl! It's a perfect color and style ~ what a great feeling to have made something that she loves and is so perfect for her.

Isn't that odd - I'd never heard of Terra yarn before today - but just this morning I picked up some Fiber Company Company Terra yarn and you knit a hat in it!

Believe me the KSH influence does show up on the photographs -- it obviously added a certain richness to the fiber.

Very cute. I was just told by my 2 daughters that berets are all the rage in New York this fall. But she has far too many hats. Go figure!
