Beautiful cables, and I love the color! Lovely!

Skully Snowflake Hat https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/skully-snowflake-hat , free download, no account needed. Made this for a young woman who loves all things Halloween-ish. Fun, well-written pattern, though I do wish that I’d had wool, or a wool-blend, sport weight yarn for this instead of acrylic. I think that the fabric would have been softer and more pleasing. Used some Red Heart Sport that I’ve had in stash for many years. Since our last “traditional” yarn shop closed in October, I’ll have to learn to pre-plan a bit better for projects that use colors or weights that I don’t have in my stash…ie, ordering yarn by mail well in advance of starting a project. :roll_eyes::unamused:

Beautiful work!

Thank you, @TexasPurl. :slightly_smiling_face:

I am sure she is going to love this.
You did a wonderful job.

Thank you @hereami. :slightly_smiling_face: I always hated stranded knitting until I learned better ways (at least better for me) to work it. I no longer look at color work as unapproachable. That said, it was a good pattern, and a surprisingly quick knit. She’s a nice young lady, so I hope it fits her, and
that she likes it! :crossed_fingers:t2:
