Owl Cable Hat from Ruthie Knits for my brother. Pattern modified for way different gauge.

Knit in Cascade Magnum (the orange) and Tahki Bunny (the red) on size 11 needles. Knit very tight to block out the wind.

Candice Hey, I think I am working on that too!!! I say "think" cause someone sent it to me (no name on pattern) cause I needed an "owl" Headband for my nephew who attends Kennesaw Univ in GA....Do you have any other owl stuff???? Let me know Thanks

DId you follow the pattern exactly and it came out bigger cuz of the bigger yarn or was the size just right for his head?

Thanks for the compliments. My 3 year old also loved it and requested hers in pink on top and purple for the ribbing. She looks cute in hers too!

I recalculated the number of cast on sts for my gauge and his head size. I have made my brother quite a few hats, so I know what size to make. I did take a couple of rounds (i think 2) out of the "body" of the owl and 1 out of the "head". I also started the owl one row after the ribbing otherwise the hat would have been too long. It is a pretty easy pattern to modify.

Very cool hat. It looks great with your brother's jacket. Colors are perfect and the pattern stitch is a neat one too. Your brother looks like a real outdoors man.
