I want to use Sidar Country Style DK wool (machine washable - 45% Acrylic, 40% nylon, 15% wool) in Color 423 (dusky pink) and size 3 knitting needles. There are two patterns for this Hermione hat, one using worsted weight wool and another with sport weight (this one is available for free at Ravelry, but you have to make a free account).
I like the way the ribbing looks on the WS more than the RS, so I inverted the project after this row. When weaving in the loose ends I took care of the tiny hole.
right side (left) and wrong side (right) of the ribbingI did 5 repeats of the cable/lace instead of 4. I suppose that this makes the hat longer than it appears on Emma Watson in the movie, but I preferred to make this a hat versus a cap.
Enjoy the hat, Laura!
