This is Coronet, by Alexandra Virgiel, as featured in Knitty. Knit on size eight 16″ circulars in Galway Highland Heather in Burgundy (746).
A fun and surprisingly quick knit – it took me about four days of casual here and there knitting to finish the band, and then just two days of casual here and there to finish the crown. I love the design – the cabled braid is fun to knit, and picking up stitches to knit the crown in the round is nifty. I sort of wish my selvedges were better – I think that this could have looked a little nicer if my selvedges were top-notch. I haven’t blocked this yet so it might all even out in the wash. We’ll see.
Hmm, a hat I actually like. Hmm. Looks great!
Diggety but you are quick on the responses! I like it a lot – I’m wearing it as I type!
The hat looks great. I love the color 🙂
Beautiful work and a lovely design. I’ll have to check that one out!
Very pretty! And I love that color. I don’t think I’ve ever actually knit with Galway yarn. Hmmm…..
