40 Hats in 40 Days week 3

It was girl's week again last week.  Here are the hats I finished.  My box is full so I will be mailing out to God's Tiny Angels this week.  Here are the hats I made and the links to the free patterns.  All hats were made with Bernat Baby Sport yarn in colorway Candy Baby.

And this is the one that almost did me in.  It is called the Expanding Gnome hat and uses a mock cable pattern.  I had never done a mock cable so I thought I would give it a try.  With the small needle size and a new technique this was definitely a time eater for me.  It was designed by Maureen Hefti and is another one of those patterns that should last for several months as it is very stretchy (unlike traditional cables).  You can get the pattern as a free PDF download on Ravelry here.
