A knitted hat for Dad ~ My first cabled project


My Dad requested a hat for Christmas of 2005. I had been knitting gifts for most people I knew. It was the first time I had taken on such an endeavor. I made this hat and gave it to my dad for his Father's Day present cuz I made it just after christmas. It was my frist project attempt at cabeling. Several years ago, I bought this book VIKING PATTERNS FOR KNITTING by Elsebeth Lavold. I was hoping that owning a book like that would inspire me to learn how to knit. I showed this book to several people I knew who knitted and even their eyes crossed! So I was persuaded to wait. I finally got "whole hog" on the knitting wagon for the Christmas season of 2005.





I had a few attempts with scrap yarn and my first one (the blue sample) didn't come out. I had no idea what I was doing. I had never read a chart in my life. I seemed to understand the charts a lot better when I made the yellow swatch. By the time I knitted the red swatch I was confident to make my first project.
