Pattern: Shedir, Knitty special edition
Yarn: Cascade 220 Wool, #8339 Marine
Needles: Knit Picks Options size 4, magic loop; KP DPNs size 1 & 3 for cast on
Started: Janurary 26
Finished: February 16
Modifications: tubular cast on courtesy of TECHknitter, cabled w/o cable needle
What I learned: The tubular cast on really makes for a professional looking FO. Don't work the cast on with DPNs if you can avoid it, I ended up with some funky gaps at two of the joins. Blocking works wonders for really making the cables pop. And stretching the hat to fit properly. I got lucky with a glass pumpkin candy dish we had lying around from Halloween and a cereal bowl.
