Cabled Coronet hat finished
Coronet hat pattern from Knitty.com by Alexandra Virgiel
Universal Yarns Inc. Deluxe Worsted Tweed 100% Wool
Size 8 needles
I really like this hat. The cabled band makes it look so dressy. I think my band may have been a little smaller than the pattern designer's. I knit the hat to the length she suggested and it seems just a little bit tall. But that leaves me plenty to pull down over my ears when it is cold.
I will definitely use this pattern again. I often make hats for charities. I think this will be a good one for that too. There is just something special about it.
This is the view outside my door yesterday. There is ice under about 8 inches of snow. Now you can see why I have needed a wool hat!
