In just a few days.
I had the cables shrink into points instead of just ending, and I made the decreases at the top of the hat semi - invisible by adding knit rows between the dec rows.
I'm digging the little crystal flower buttons too.
This is the first of a little "hat wardrobe" I've volunteered to make for a friend. I promise I'll do some new patterns now, instead of a whole batch of Cableds. Almost done with the gift knitting and back to those gloves.
