The cuff has 4 pattern repeats of the cable pattern—and then I reversed the work, and started again on the body of the hat. I am just about done with repeat 6 of the cable pattern A few more repeats and then I'll start the crown shaping—and another pair pair of hats will be done.
These are 'coming home from the hospital hats” they are small, and will fit for a month or two—but not next winter. Machine washable sock yarn—in this case, Red Heart's Heart & Sole.
After the hats, I'll be starting on the baby blankets—I am still unsure which pattern I will use, or if I will use 2 different patterns.. or.. But I need to get started.
