Cabled and Bobbled Hat

Pattern: FiberTrends: Braid and Bobble Hat
Needles: 2 straight US 6 needles, size US 6 dpns for the top
Yarn: some Donegal Tweed we purchased on the Dingle Peninsula
Special Technique: Cabling, bobbling, procrastinating
Started: Some time in February 2005
Completed: February 14, 2006
Recipient: Meg

From this pattern, I learned that written directions can be extremely annoying. As soon as I charted this out, I found myself flying through it. I also learned that I am not a huge fan of cabling. Front crosses appeal to me more than back crosses, as back crosses are much more difficult to knit continentally.

I agree that front cable crosses are much easier than the back ones. I think it looks great.
