Hermione loves Ron in pink

The Girl asked for a pink hat, with cables. Pink is not something I generally wear or knit – so I bought three different skeins of pink yarn and let her pick her favorite. She chose a Cascade 220 Superwash Paint, which is light worsted. I then set out to find a cabled hat pattern that would work with this variegated yarn. My first choice was written for a heavier yarn and for whatever reason, my mathing wasn’t working out and the hat ended up way too small and I didn’t love the way the variegated was working out anyway. Rather than make a second go at it, I looked for a new pattern and ran across Hermione Hearts Ron. This has simple cables separated by eyelet panels, which gives the hat lots of stretch.
