I only had two Christmas presents to knit this year, but I still managed to not get one done in time. I was going to knit Britta her traditional hat, but I ran out of time with end of term essays and stuff. She knew about it so I wrapped the skein of yarn in a box with a note that said “HAT” and stuck it under the tree.
I worked on it while watching holiday movies after she unwrapped it.
I ended up knitting two completely different hats. Version one was way too small. This one turned out small too, but it is wearable. I’m not sure what the deal was. My swatches for both versions say that the hat should be bigger than it is. Maybe the yarn is just cursed.
It turned out pretty cute. I’m quite pleased with how the decreases worked with the cables.
