After the humid heat of summer, autumn ushers in cooler days and bursts of color.
Just in time for the cool weather, I made up this chunky cabled hat from the Wooli yarn in my stash using this pattern (sans pompom).
Here it is in progress. The top two photos taken with my phone are fuzzier than I would like but I had to show the circular work in progress. I chuckled as I thought of Obey Crochet and hook’s smug comment about how many needles it takes to make a circle.
Here are some gratuitous pictures of mums and the last gardenias blooming in the garden. Those oranges, yellows and ochres brighten up our doorstep.

I love this season. But then I also like winter.
Inspiring. Your pictures are lovely. What a great way to get into the season.
Thanks! I love this family of colors and the cooler weather.
My favourite season.Love the hat and the 4 needles!
It was a nice, easy pattern but the cabling added interest.
Very nice. All. I love the cabled hat!
Thanks. I’m pleased with how it turned out with that Wooli yarn.
nice photos, too!
Simultaneous cables and double-pointed needles: nice work!
Hadn’t thought of that! There was a lot going on with this pattern.
You’re obviously a whizz at juggling pointy sticks, congrats!
beautiful! I love that hat, anyone, man woman boy or girl could wear it, great gift idea 🙂
Well it turns out my husband liked it and it fits him perfectly. I think the chunky cables fit a guy well.
So pretty! I want to let you know that I’ve nominated you for two awards over on my blog: http://notyouraveragecrochet.wordpress.com/2012/10/18/awards-and-a-knitting-conundrum/
Thank you Hannah!
This is my favorite season, that and early sping, you know, the first warm spell… Guess I’m just a tweener (as we used to say).
Warm is ok. Hot and humid gets to me after awhile.
Love the cables~!
Thank you much.
cool hat! A friend just recently taught me how to knit. It’s been a slow process.
It will go fast after some practice. It’s fun to do and you can still have a conversation or watch tv while knitting and it’s a great time filler when having to wait.
