Gretel

Gretel Hat 2

My Mom's birthday is just around the corner so I worked up a hat that's been in my queue for some time. The pattern, Gretel, is full of twisty cable turns, whew!

I made the medium slouch version (there are three setups for this pattern), because I didn't think I'd have enough yarn to make the slouchiest size, which has 10 more rows of twists and turns. I'm quite pleased with the outcome and Mom seems to like it, too.

Mom looks beautiful in her new hat! My niece picked this hat out for me to make for her when I first began knitting but I have yet to attempt it. Seeing this makes me want to give it a try.
