FO: Vaa Cabled Hat for Nancy

I love this FO so much, I almost kept it for myself and knit something else for Nancy. Nancy is my dear cousin, and I wanted to make her something special; something she could use for the approximately one month of cold weather we get here in Houston. Her only requests were: a dark and rich color, and no stripes. Other than that, I was free to knit what I wanted.


And so I did.

Pattern: Swirl Cable Hat, by SmarieK
Yarn: Malabrigo in Vaa, less than one skein (probably a little more than 120 yards used)
Needles: KnitPicks Circular, Size 7
Time: Five days.
Recipient: Nancy

Completion: Vaa Cabled Hat

Thoughts/mods/notes: No mods. The pattern was well written and easy to follow. I do have to say, this went much faster cabling without a needle, so if you're going to knit this, check out Grumperina's helpful guide.
You already know I love Malabrigo, but this colorway is so gorgeous. Love it!


  1. I also love the Vaa colorway, it's so saturated! I can't wait to get my hands on some more of it.

  2. What a fab hat! Nancy is one lucky cousin!

    Isn't Vaa one of the most fab colorways? I was so sad when I had to destash it. I actually don't have any Malabrigo in my stash anymore now, either. I miss it! *sniff*

  3. Wow, that colorway is so perfect. Really really nice for the hat. I am sure she will cherish it!

  4. Oh how I love that hat! It's so nice and soft. Warmes the ears and it a great color on my skin! And this year I get to wear it for 2 months! Thanks for the great present!
