Hi every one, please bear with me as I get my bearings! In the meantime, here are 2 free patterns to download.

Published January 2009

This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

Errata on the download:Gauge should read;20 sts and 30 rows = 4” (10 cm) over St st using smaller needles. About 6 sts and 30 rows = 1” in 2X2 rib unstretched. One 12 st cable repeat (using larger needles = 1 7/8” wide.
Sizes: Small; baby to small child, Medium; large child to small adult, Large; large adult

Yarn I used: Berroco Ultra Alpaca Worsted / 10 ply (9 wpi) Yardage: 215 yards (197 meters), Unit weight; 100 grams (3.53 ounces) 50% Super Fine Alpaca 50% Peruvian Highland Wool. For the 2 smaller sizes 1 hank is more than enough. For the smallest size about 150 yards, for the medium size you’ll need about 175 yards, for the larger size you’ll need about 250 yards of any worsted weight yarn.
Needle size: US 7 and 8 or (4.5 – 5mm), 16”circulars, and US 7 (4.5mm) set of double points.
Notions: St markers, cable needle, yarn needle.

This hat is knit inside out.
