The second of the knitalongs was of course the first one I finished, since it's just a quick little hat. I love the lilac colour so much, and think it really works with these cables.
The skein of Green Label Aran had plenty of yarn in it to do a third repeat of the cables before closing the top, which makes the hat just a bit longer - long enough to cover my ears in the cold, which was the idea. I probably could have made it with a bit of a looser gauge, so it wouldn't be so snug around my big ol' head. It's ok as is, but I feel like a bit more give would be more comfy and give more of a slouchy fit when I don't pull it all the way down.
Either way, I'm happy to have a bright spot of colour to cheer me up on those cold winter walks to work.
