This was the first Dean Street hat I knit. Originally it was for Nate, but I felt it was a little small even for me. It sort of inches upwards when you are wearing it. Which drives me batty.
|Looooove the texture!|
The Ravelry pattern link is here and is designed by Nina Machlin Dayton.
I used Patons Classic Wool in Aqua, I think. This color is a staple in my stash and I don't even know its name.
I believe I cast on 108 on US 7, and never changed sizes.
I definitely love this pattern and recommend it for a quick knit. The right front cable cross is not at all difficult. I do suggest using POINTY needles! This hat I knit with Hiya Hiya bamboos, and they are fairly blunt. It was a challenge to not split the yarn when doing the RFCC. Very frustrating. But when I knit the hat for Nate, I used Knitpicks Harmonys and what a joy!!! It went soo much quicker and I didn't have to constantly double check that I split the yarn.
