Gordon needed a winter hat, and when I showed him this pattern, he decided that was the one he wanted. It’s the Binary Cable Hat (Rav link) – perfect for a techno-geek like him!

The first time I knitted it, I discovered that the pattern isn’t quite deep enough in the crown, and it came out more like a skull-cap than a hat. So, I knitted it again – and this time, Gordon gave me the binary code for ‘Gordon’s’ to incorporate in the cable pattern. (Not that many people are going to be able to read who the hat belongs to – but he knows it’s there!)

This picture shows some of the cables a little better – but the mixing bowl isn’t as handsome a model as Gordon!
