Name of website or photo Finchley Road Hat
What materials did you use? Yarn: Valley Yarns Sheffield (70% Merino/15% Silk/15% Angora); 50 gr/120 yds. 8 balls. Needles: US #7 (4.5mm) dpns or size needed to achieve gauge; US #3 (3.25mm) dpns. Notions: 4 st markers, cable needle, tapestry needle for weaving in ends.
What are you most proud of? It took a few tries, but I like how the ribbing on the brim flows right into the cables.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? You'll need to start out on dpns. You can probably switch to a short (16" circular) needle for the main body of the hat (I prefer circulars myself) then you're back to the dpns for the increases at the crown. There's some increasing where the brim meets the body, so you'll have to pay close attention there but the rest I think it pretty straightforward.
