Oh, I could not WAIT for Gage to get big enough to wear this hat! I just knew, the whole time I was knitting away, that he would look this adorable in it.
The Master Charles Cabled Ear Flap Cap can be found at Knit Picks. The kit comes with Gloss HW Yarn, which I love. It feels so nice in your hands and knits up just as soft as can be.
I deviated a little from the pattern. It directed you to pick up stitches all the way around the completed cap and then knit a few rows from there. I
absolutely, passionately detest don’t care much for picking up stitches, so I did a single crochet stitch around the edge to finish.
Love this pattern! I know I’ll make it again.
And in other news …
I found these unbelievable Raisin Rosemary Crackers at Trader Joe’s. The thought of mixing rosemary and raisins was so odd that I had to buy a box and see if it works. It does … in a big way. You really must try these. Every bite has just the perfect blend of sweet and savory. I’m pretty mad at myself for not inventing these first.
