I love how complicated the cable looks when in fact it's really easy! Not exactly mindless knitting but an easy pattern to memorise so I didn't have to keep consulting back at the pattern. There are instructions from baby-adult and the style of the hat is very stretchy so it fits a range of sizes. It's very well written and I'd recommend it for someone wanting to try cables :-)
Excuse his face, I caught him a bit unawares!
