Aran Mittens and Hat

004  005Since I had half of the yarn left from the mittens, I decided to make the matching hat.  I had one yard left.  ONE YARD!  OMG!  Was I ever lucky.  I put that one yard in a tiny plastic bag.  Now.  Where did I put it?  Does the hat look too big?  It’s not.  It’s just that my glass head is about an inch and a half smaller than my real head.  It has to be, with all the crap it’s got in there.  So anyway.  I really  like this hat!  It fits well and even better, looks good on my head!  The construction was a lot of fun.  The cable brim is knit in a strip, then sewn into a circle.  Stitches are picked up  along the upper edge and knit in the round.  The pattern also comes with a matching scarf.  You can buy it from Beth Brown-Reinsel at http://www.knittingtraditions.com.
