In the last Harry Potter movie, Hermione wears this cute cable and eyelet hat. I wouldn’t know this as I haven’t seen the movie. But I ran across the pattern, and it was pretty without being fussy or overly feminine. I knitted it for myself. It should have fit me perfectly, as I have a very small head and the hat was said to run a bit too small for the average adult. Unfortunately, I knitted the pattern exactly as written instead of going down a needle size. The result was a hat perfectly sized for a normal head, but not mine.
I mailed it to my daughter-in-law along with the Tardis case. It will perfectly match the fingerless gloves I made for her earlier, being made from the same ball of yarn.
The pattern I used is Hermione’s Cable and Eyelet Hat by Jackie Lauseng.
I will make one major change when I knit it again. I will relocate the eyelets to be in the middle of the cable’s straight section instead of immediately before the cable twist row. I may put 2 rows between the eyelets rather than one.
But isn’t this a very pretty hat?
