My First Hat!

I made a Hat! My first hat!

My own pattern, played it by eye.

Cable cast on 60 st join together for magic loop Sz 10.5 needles
I used 2 strands of 2 different colors by Lion Brand. This was the first time I ever used two strands at once.

This is the yarn I used.

I used the cable cast on.

Magic Loop.

This is after the first 10 rows.

Better lighting from a different time of day.

This is 20 rows.

Showing the detail.

Finally finished!

This wave happens when you decrease 2 together in the same spot row after row. Rows 21-33.
