Train Hat

Updated: Feb 8

This is my knitting project from our holiday train ride to Portland, Oregon. I used a free pattern called "Traveling Cable Hat," by Purl Soho, and it came highly recommended by Gay Outlaw--who is an excellent knitter--unlike me. I was so lazy and without a ruler on the train, I didn't take a proper gauge. The resulting hat is oversized and not how the pattern intended. I cut out two rows of pattern to accommodate my bulky yarn (the instructions call for worsted weight). I'm going by the book for my next project, but Portland is oddly frigid so my oversized hat is cozy.
