Nine Dwindling Cables Hat (Teacher: Ms. Candy) 15$

This is an amazing looking beret style hat that reminded me of a dahlia the first time I made it as a gift. The cable process on this wonder is intriguing, your decreases to shape the hat are hidden within the cables, until they dwindle down to just a few stitches. Make it for spring with lightweight fibers, or go ahead and start preparing for winter and break out the wool, this one is going to be worsted weight and will work up fast.
