Coronet hat in Cotton Ease

I finally completed Coronet after having the band languishing for a few weeks while I completed Clapotis!

Pattern: Coronet by Alexandra Virgiel (Knitty Winter '03)
Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton Ease, approx. two thirds of a skein
Needles: 5mm 12" Addi circular and 5mm bamboo DPNs

I managed to graft the cabled band from the wrong side after misreading some instructions, but it looks fine and at least you know where the back of the hat is :-D I tried this on and it felt lovely and surprisingly warm. It is intended for Caps for a Cure.

Very beautiful indeed! I wanted to try my hands at this pattern too this winter - well, as winter still hasn't arrived here, I suppose I'll have a bit more time left to do so! ;) It's awesome, and I love the luscious pink you've been using!

I thought this one was for you. You're very generous to give it away as it was hard work and such a lovely hat.

I love this pattern, and wear mine all the time so I'm sure the new owner will love it!
