Powder Eights

Powder Eights has been published and is available as a Ravelry download! Want to try? This hat has served me well for over two years. Try as I might, I have been unable to knit anything to replace it for winter weather. It's a fairly complicated knit, with over 20 decrease rows, but the cabling is continuous to the top, which was a design feat.

The lovely model in these photos is Mari, author of No Project Left Behind. I'm hoping that she'll be a guest designer here soon. I also have to thank my co-author, Liz, for having done all of the .pdf files for my designs. Would that I had her skills and information!

Happy knitting!


  1. I want to say how happy I am to be able to knit the Powder Eights. I love love love that the cable goes all the way up and that it is in a thicker yarn. Thank you for making it available!
