Here’s a not particularly good picture of my first FO for 2013:
To be fair, the BC16 did take a full-face picture of the recipient wearing it, but I don’t have her permission to post it (and she’s a minor), so I cropped it down. I have hope (but no expectation) that I can get a couple of photos that actually show the details of the hat, and you can count on me to post those if/when I get them.
The hat pattern is free in the knitty.com archives. It’s called Knotty But Nice, and it is both of those things. (Truth in advertising… who knew?!) Please click through to see the cabling details on the design, because it could be a long time before I get more photos of the aqua one above, and I know you want to see those cables now. (Go ahead. I’ll wait.)
Check out my summary of the project for my modifications, which were mostly focused on the decreases above the cables. And if/when I get photos, I hope those mods will be visible. (Cross your fingers? Thanks. Now uncross them, ’cause it’s hard to surf the innerwebs like that!)
Hope your year is shaping up to be a grand one. Later, kittens!
