The chunky cable hat.

I’ve got a lot of love for this little hat. It’s a project that came about unexpectedly when I received four gorgeous balls of chunky Katia yarn as a birthday present and didn’t know quite what to do with them. I usually only buy yarn when I have a specific project in mind so working in reverse – yarn first, project second – was a rare treat. In an effort to show off the wonderful variegated colours, I went about designing this simple cable knit hat and it’s fast become a firm favourite for chilly dog walks and the like.

There’s also a scarf that I knitted in the same wool which I also love but it doesn’t seem to get worn as often as the hat. It’s super long and my dog likes to chew the end… She has very little respect for woollen items.
