This is the hat I knit for my niece as part of her Christmas gift set.

I am surprised how quickly this knit up. I think it is partially due to the weight of yarn, though.

I knit this in size S/M and made the slouch version. I think it is a fashionable look, currently. I hope it will fit her. When I first began this, I substituted 1×1 twisted rib for the regular ribbing, but it looked awkward with the cables coming out of the twisted rib. So I started over and like the design as written much better.

This is a wonderful yarn to knit. I hope it holds up well to cleaning — it is labeled as machine washable. It is very soft, “springy,” and has excellent stitch definitions, which makes the cabling beautiful.
Purple is my niece’s favorite color, and I just love this deeper tone.
