Hi Fellow Knitters,
I come and go and I'm back...I've warmed up my knitting needles with a couple projects so far shown below. I'm now looking for a pattern for a newborn hat that I'd like to make for a dear friend's newborn baby due in Dec. I know it will be simple once i find a pattern for a braided cable that can be fit into about 12 stitches. The picture of what I'd like to shoot for is also below. Furthermore, since I'll be knitting up and picking up stitches along the top edge to make the dome of the hat does that mean that I just have to sew the ends together? Now that I'm writing this I am now wondering is there a way to do this hat with the horizontal cable and make it a dome shape and now square top? Any help would be appreciated.
