I saw an adorable elf hat pattern in a knitting book. I knew I just had to make it for my one year old sweet boy. Only it had me making cables.
I’ve never done cables. I’ve been knitting for about two years now, but I’ve never done cables. Or color changes either. Or anything with true shaping, like a sweater. Or anything else that requires a lot of attention…
But this time I thought, I can do it. So I watched a couple of how to videos just to reassure myself, and soldiered on. I went out and bought special yarn, knitted a size swatch because I wanted to make sure it would fit him, and began.
The hat turned out ok (except for the very first cable turn).

That is such a cute hat! I am amazed that anyone can actually knit things. I could barely manage a simple square.
I'm impressed that you tried again! I knitted a couple coasters once, after taking a class with my grandma. I tried to do a slipper and it was an epic fail. I could not keep count of my stitches!
LOVE! Both the purple first attempt, after all doesn't every one year old boy want a purple elf hat! ;-D! And the final result!
