I tried to save the yarn, but since it was JIFFY and it was FUZZY and i knit tight it was imposable to save, I even had Hubby work at it and he said screw this lol. SO it got thrown away lol. The hat I found on the internet let me see if i can find the site.....BINGO found it!!! > http://www.knitlist.com/99gift/baby-ribbed-hat.htm

These are "mock" cables...very easy if you just follow the pattern carefully! No cable needle required :)

This hat is SO EASY trust me!!!!!!!!! I can only do basic cables and this is called a MOCK CABLE....it really is not a cable lol....read the pattern and after you read it ....you will want to do it trust me lol . I did not have a size 7 double point I DO NOT like to make hats on circular needles so I am using a 6 and to be honest not to much a a diffrence between the 6 and 7 needles, so it just might come out ok. I hope someone else starts this hat as well...I am going to be making two of them this one and one more ...don't know what color just yet, but i am going to make it as my exchange gift for christmas with my husbands family. This one is for my mother in-law and the GREEN is ALOT softer colored in person, I just could not get a good picture lol.It is like a soft SAGE green because my mother in-law has that color in her house and she JUST re did the house I figured she liked that color lol. Well off th knit i go lol.....I figured out what to make my two neighbors .....the seatbelt hugger and a dish rag thats got three crosses in the design. My mom I thought LONG AND HARD and i am going to make her NOTHING...I am going to instead invite my mom to my mother inlaws again she enjoyed it so much , and she keeps telling me not to make or buy anything so i will do that lol. Ok ok ok off to knit lol and eat lunch i am HUNGRY lol...
PS adding a picture of me for you all to see! :roflhard: :cheering: :roflhard:
