Another beanie for Kathrin

Kathrin-from-Belleruche was so impressed with the last beanie hat I (eventually) made her, she asked for another one! This time, to be made in black and slightly longer.

I used the same pattern as last time, but added a couple of extra rows in each knitted section, before and after the cables, and about 5 more rows on the edging.  This used almost exactly 2 balls of Rowan Cotton Glace – there was just a tiny nubbin left over. By the end I was actually knitting from two ends of one ball, desperately trying to knit faster before the yarn ran out, and having terrible flashbacks.

Kathrin's beanie - redux. Unfortunately modelled by me, not the lovely Kathrin.

Next, I have an awesome knitting and steeking project to show you, once I can figure out how to sort the video out. Yes – video. Be afraid…
