  1. I am perplexed. I have knit this hat using the same yarn, same size needle, and followed the pattern carefully and my hat doesn’t look like this. I am getting a cable with a minor “o” repeat and none of the “x” repeats at all. Very, very disappointed and do not understand why my hat does not look like the projects on ravelry.
