FO Friday: Alessa Hat

Pattern:Alessa Hat by Sylvi Design
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft Paints
Needles: US 8 DPNs

Well, that hat didn't take all that long to finish! I love it, and more importantly, the little girl loves it!
Very nice pattern, and the yarn is really soft and light for our mild non-winter weather right now.  I knit it pretty loosely. Maybe a little too loose, because I got some really bad ladders where I switched to the next dpn. It is a reversible hat, so having the purl side on the outside hides it a lot better. It also makes the cable stand out a lot more.

Modifications: I used aran instead of bulky and used smaller needles than pattern calls for. I wanted it E sized. Fits her great. Used dpns instead of circular. I think next time I will go with the circular to eliminate the ladders.

I have yarn left over. Think I will make one for myself. :)

Happy Knitting!
