Sometimes knitted gifts last for a really long time, sometimes for so long that they need to be fixed after a while. Like this one. I made the hat for a really good friend with whom I worked with several years ago. The relationship has grown substantially since I made her the hat, and she's now one of my best friends (so I guess the hat was a good investment..). Anyway, the ribbed hem had become too loose, so I've reknit it.
There is no pattern for the hat, as I improvised it as I went. I do recall I had a system for the cables at the time of the knitting, but I can't remember how I did it (I think the hat must be about six years old).
