Testing a Hat Pattern/Adventures in Cabling

Here's my second FO (finished object) of the year:

Proton Stream Convergence cable knit hat

Pattern: Proton Stream Convergence by Gillian Kratzer

Yarn: Patton's Classic Wool Merino in Chestnut Brown

Needles: US size 6 bamboo 36″ circular for ribbed band, US size 8 bamboo DPNs for rest of hat, cable needle

Start: January 23, 2011

Finish: January 31, 2011

Comments: I was a tester for this pattern. This was such a well written pattern!  Love the end result. I am painfully slow at knitting cables because I am very unpracticed at them. I only have somewhat large plates, so when it blocked it turned into a beret.  Which is all the better for me.  I adore berets.  I will certainly do this pattern again in the future.
