One mystery KAL revealed

Cables and red, things that I definately like! I was invited to the KAL (which is over now) as I had recently bought a Mondo cable pattern. Stay tuned for that one later this fall.

At the top!


My leetle French girl! As you can see she likes it beret style.

Mondo Cable Hat
Malabrigo Worsted in Vermillion
US 5 & 8 circs, knit magic loop

I used my 8 Zephyrs tips and oh....wow....like buttah!! This wool just glided along.

Le' Chapeau
Sigh..even in daylight, red is a tempermental color to picture!

I so don't like it on me though :(
well...
I blocked it with a plate inside. I want it more slouchier. I think I'll resoak it and try to block it different so I can wear it. After all, I already have a matching pair of Toasty Reds and I think I have enough leftover for a small cowl too.

Zonda, you are just like Red Ridding Hood - all you need now is a capellet!

OOO, i love that hat! Adding it to my queue immediately. Yours turned out so gorgeous!

Cookie said...

Love it! Well done!

Batty said...

She looks great in a beret! I can't pull one off either. It actually doesn't look bad on you, but I think a different hat shape would be better. Me? I look like the French dude they forgot to arrest after a bust at the drug-selling winery...

Mmm...rich red and nice chubby crisp cables! Nice!!!

Dee said...

Very cute hat! That will be very cheery on those dreary winter days.

hehhee...I'm laughing at Batty's comment about berets in general. That's how I look in them too. But I think it looks great on you!

Okay, it looks absolutely perfect on DD!

Niiiiice! I love the red. LOVE it. I,too like hats a bit slouchier, if only to stick all this boufy hair up in it. I tend to do them with a bit of 'rasta-tude' if you know what I mean. I'll bet this will block out the way you want it to (says she who never blocks).

The hat looks great! On both of you!
