Even though we are in the midst of a heat wave (along with much of the country), we still want to get our fall/winter knitting going. Instead of big projects like sweaters or afghans, we find ourselves constantly grabbing smaller projects to work on – items that can be done quickly during marathons our favorite tv shows while sitting in air conditioned bliss. An excellent pattern for that would be Joyce Fassbender‘s newest free hat pattern – CouCou Cable Chapeau!
Hannah loves it!
This is also a perfect project for showing off your knitting skills with those intricate cables! And it has a secret – while the outer layer is knit up in gorgeous Wool of the Andes there’s a hidden inner layer.
This extra layer is great for a bit of extra warmth on blustery days – and since it’s knit up in Reverie, you know it’ll be super soft & snuggly on your head.
This fabulous pattern is fully charted and knit from the bottom up. You start with a provisional cast on and knit the outer layer, then remove the cast on and knit the inner layer. You’ll be done in no time and enjoy every stitch of this project!
