Wow, you are making progress so fast. I agree, the baby in a hat is super cute. And booties look lovely as well.

I can actually see the cables in the hat on the bear....very good job! My first cable project, just last year, was a hot water bottle cover....had to make two sides (front and back) and sew tog. Took months to finish.

Congrats!

That's adorable! You did a great job on the cables!

You can use bigger needles and it will be slightly bigger, but the stitch will also be looser. The bigger the needles more open it'll be. Not always what you want for a hat that is supposed to be warm. If you liked fabric on the first hat and want it the same on the second hat then use more stitches not bigger needles.

You're doing wonderfully! Your cables show up fine. That hat will have a lot of stretch so I'm sure it will still fit Irelynn (cute name) next fall. Good job on the booties as well.

Congrats on your first cable project .... wasn't it so much easier than you thought it would be?? I was always intimidated by cables until I finally tried it and realized how simple they were!

Too bad it turned out a little small, but at least someone will be able to enjoy it!
