In the meantime, I'm not doing much in the way of exciting knitting. Still working on Icarus, still working on my continental knitting with the Ugly Afghan.
However, with no further ado: the pattern!
Knit this baby with anything, really.

* 15 repetitions of the cable pattern was how many times it took for it to fit my head. It will probably be different for you. Try it on as you go. When you're done, it shouldn't be loose. I would actually keep it on the shorter side if you're debating between making it one repeat longer or not. The yarn will stretch with wear, and the elasticity will keep it on your head.
