I've finally got the written and charted instructions done up for this hat. If you might be interested in test knitting, please drop me a line via Ravelry. Thank you for your responses; test knitting is now under way - hooray!
This was my inspiration...
Still Creek - a rather long stream flowing both above and under ground through the city and only minutes away from our house. We love walking down here and playing Poohsticks from the bridge.
The way leaves travel down the stream came to mind while coming up with this hat, the rippling cables imitating the current that carries them.
It was fun figuring out the arrangement of the pattern on the hat and I quite like how it so resembles the water.
