Knitted with alpaca/synthetic yarn, in a shinny red that was very hard to photograph. Border finished with crochet hook. Pattern by Patons Yarns: Patons Colorwul Bramble Stitch Scarf.
This hat was made by following a pattern by Bernat. It is called Bernat Satin Cable Hat (free). I entertained the idea of making the cowl with cables. But that did not last long. I chose to alternate ribs (the same width as on the hat) and jersey. Much simpler.
