Quickest of quick FO posts, but I have now found the right pompom* for my raspberry cabled hat, and I LOVE IT.
Those cables and the fold-up brim make this hat super-warm and cosy. And this yarn has a touch of silk luxe, which does no harm whatsoever.
Better photos (of the striped version too) and more details to come when I post the pattern (it’s currently being test knitted for me by Paula from Spin A Yarn – thank you, lovely!).
Pattern: Freedom and cables (knitwear design is not the reason I went self-employed, but it does seem a bit of a coincidence that I manage a pattern in the first month of freelancing, eh?)
Yarn/needles: Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK, in Raspberry pink/102
More details: Watch this space!
* From my local yarn shop – I should never have looked anywhere else, of course.
