Cabled Santa Hat

   
 
The last time I talked to my dad in person, he said he wanted to come to the big Christmas gathering as Santa Claus. He has a long white beard now and would definitely be the part – excepting the huge belly. So I thought for his present I would make him a Santa hat.  

It was an original pattern, gathering two cable patterns from my knit stitch book and composing one of my own. I made a white Pom Pom to put on the top. I hope he likes it. I’m going to make him some Christmas colored knitted driving fingerless gloves too, if I have time.

I didn’t use a pattern for this hat. It took me a while to figure out a stitch repeat that would work with the number of stitches I cast on.

These booties are from this pattern.IMG_0215This scarf is also going with this gift. It doesn’t match, but it is still green and white.

I made this scarf in one day. I used the last of this yarn on it. It’s more of an infant/toddler size scarf. It is a basic garter stitch using size 15 needles and two worsted weight yarn strands. It’s 30 inches long. It feels cuddly.

I knit this hat last month sometime, I don’t think I ever posted it because it wasn’t with the rest of my finished knits. It’s an adult size hat.
