Proper FO Post

Now for a proper Finished Object blog post for my new hat.  I really love it!

DB took photos this morning, outside when we had a bit of sunshine.  The color is captured very well here.

The pattern is Rosebud by Jared Flood.  The yarn is Madelinetosh Chunky in color Midnight in Manhattan.  I only had one skein and wasn’t sure it would be enough to make a hat.  The skein weighed 114g to start with and I have 10g left.

I used the size needles required in the pattern (8US) but I only cast on 80 stitches instead of 84.  Everything else I made according to the pattern, for the small size with only 2 repeats of the cable pattern.

It fits a little bit loose on my peanut head, but I like that.  Hats that are too tight give me a headache.  This is a super quick knit and I highly recommend it for yourself or as a gift.  I made it as part of the Madelinetosh Lovers Group SAL (Stitch-a-Long) on Ravelry.  But I would have made it in any case.  And I’m going to wear it a lot in this cold winter weather!
