With Valentine's Day coming up I thought about cables opening up into a heart shape and when a friend asked me to make a hat for her grand daughter, I decided to come up with a design for a hat with cables, bobbles, and hearts.
It is knit with a super bulky yarn on size 13 needles, so you can finish it in one evening or maybe two, and for less than $3 with the Weekly Ad coupon from Michael's. Charisma is my favorite yarn right now, it is so soft and so affordable!
