Coronet Finished

Here at last are shots of the Coronet hat from Knitty. I finished it about a fortnight ago but hadn't managed to take the shots. It's knitted in malabrigio which is lovely and soft but I suspect that it will pill a lot.

The colours are great too - in real life this colourway has a little bit more of a richer greeny aqua type mix as well as the blues. I love it. It's going to be my winter hat for living in Berry.

It was an easy knit and I loved the process of knitting the cable band first then joining it by grafting (I did a threeneedle bind off tho - it looked better) then picking up the stitches and knitting upwards for the rest of the hat. I'm sure I'll knit it again for pressies.
