Hat Chocolate

Back in November I made my sister in law a scrumptious brown cabley hat. I vowed then to make myself an identical one. After holiday knits and side tracks with mittens, I finally completed it. I present Hat Chocolate #2, which will actually end up being sent to said sister in law, in exchange for the original hat, because it seems she's got a much bigger brain than me. The original fits me perfectly, and so hat the second got one extra repeat of length so as to accommodate her braininess.

Project Specs:
Pattern: 3 A.M. Cable Hat by SmarieK
Needles: #7 DPNs
Yarn: Classic Elite Waterlily, color 1978.
Notes: same as before - great pattern, fabulous yummy yarn. Just added some length by increasing initial ribbing about an inch and adding one more 8 row cable repeat before decreases.

I love that hat too. Now that I think about it, you do have sort of a smallish head. Which is interesting because your children are very large-headed.
