Unoriginal Hat
Pattern: An Unoriginal Hat by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee

Needle: US 10½ / 6.5 mm
Yarn: Rowan Big Wool
1 skeins = 87.0 yards (79.6m)
Colorway 21 (white and gray)

I used exactly 1 ball of Rowan Big Wool with only a couple of yards left over. The hat is a bit small on me; I misread the instructions and used size 10.5 needles instead of size 11. (But then I might have run out of yarn.) Rowan Big Wool is kind of hard to work into cables because it’s not very elastic. It’s very soft.
