FO: Slouchy Hat

So, I needed a break from the afghan, and knowing I wouldn't finish it in time anyways, I made this for the fair instead.
http://azknits.azure-m.com/2010/11/f...louch-hat.html

It was my first experience knitting in the round, my first experience with cables, and my first experience with double pointed needles. And, all in all, I am quite pleased with it. It is the first of my 'winter set' I am working on, I will mainly use it for ice-skating. Coming soon will be scarf (WIP), legwarmers, and fingerless mittens (or gloves, if I can find a pattern).
I have yet to order my double pointed needles, the ones I used on this project were 'homemade'. No comment.
This is little sis posing for me. It is slightly too large on her, but....

Here is a pic from the back. (Sorry, I couldn't get two pics on the same post.)
Oh, yes, and I made it in about four hours, would have been quicker had I the proper tools. :oops:

Wow! This doesn't look like a first-time anything! More like a pro. Super job on the hat, and I bet it'll get you a ribbon for sure at the fair.

Cute model, too!

Beautiful hat and a very successful venture into knitting in the round and cables. It looks like you've been doing this for years. It's going to be part of a gorgeous set. Well done!

I would have never guessed that it was your first experience, it looks so professional. Congrats on job well done!

very nice, I am about to knit my first slouchy hat for my daughter, I am thinking of doing this pattern instead of the one I was going to do. Thanks for posting.
What type of increase did you use for the M1's, may I ask?
