FO: Braided Cable Skull Caps--Tiny, Medium and Large
I made these from the Little Turtle Knits Braided Cable Skull Cap pattern. I used Lorna's Laces Handpainted Shepard's Worsted. The red/yellow/blue color is called Lorakeet, but I didn't get my label with the blue/green color. I used size 9 circs for the large, size 8 circs for the medium and size 6 circs and dpn's for the tiny size. I made them to fit my two boys, ages 4.5 and 2, and for my baby (unknown gender) due in early January. This pattern was rated 'Intermediate' and is technically probably the most complicated thing I've done since learning to knit in January. Really, it was easy, so I'm proud of myself--my skills must be growing!

Enjoy!
