Here’s the newest member of the Celtic Child series of knitting patterns.

The cables on this hat match the cables in the Cridhe Irish Heartbeat Pullover.

The tassels in this sample are attached using a contrasting yarn. I initially did this to show the technique during construction but it is a way to add just a bit of colour. Another option could be to make the tassels from coloured yarn / multi coloured yarn. A great way to use up very short bits and bobs of yarn — you know, all those 6″ (15cm) ends that you just can’t throw out because they will come in handy one day!

btw: all of the patterns are now available through Ravelry.
