This Sweet Eleanor cap is one of my current favorite hats to knit. Working up quickly, this hat still provides interest for me as a knitter and for the wearer, too, with its two cables alternating, one large wide cable and one small four stitch cable, around the cap.
I have made three hats in this oatmeal yarn. Encore. 75% acrylic, 25% wool. Machine washable. Two skeins = 3 hats.
Every time I finish one of these hats and see how the ingenious pattern produces a six pointed star on the top I'm thrilled with the beauty of the hat and the pattern and the brilliance of its designer.
