FO: Cable & Eyelet Hat
This cable & eyelet hat is for my grandmother's birthday this weekend. I used this pattern by JL Yarnworks, and Paton's Canadiana yarn in "Medium Green Tea".

I love the color ... it's perfect for my grandma. Overall, I think it turned out really well (although if I made it again I would make it a little shorter).
