Tasseled Hood Reviewed by e on 2012-12-21 *****
I needed a gift idea and found this pattern to be fairly quick and very easy (started and finished in one day - about 9 hours total knitting time). I did make two changes: I used Hometown USA in Portland Wine (I needed a little less than 2.5 balls) and instead of all garter stitch, I did garter for two rows, then stockinette for two rows. I'm definitely going to make another for myself!

I knit mine in stockinette instead of garter, and because I have a large head and also because I knit tight I used a size 15 needle and I knit it to 21" instead of 18". I absolutely loved this pattern and want to make another in another color! Also very simple to knit.

This is NOT a 'one size fits all pattern. It swamped me but fitted my husband's big head, though he looked ridiculous in it. I took it apart and made the hood into a bag and used the braid as a scarf. Next time I'll make the hood narrower. I'm down rating because of the sizing. Still a nice project though and worthwhile doing.

It's an easy hat to make, but the thickness of the yarn makes it hard when you do the cable. I did use the yarn that was suggested

So quick and easy, but a really pretty distinctive design. Fun to work the braid, simple but impressive.

I made this for my friend in the white the pattern called for. She loves it and hasn't taken it off since.

This was my first time doing a cable knit and it was great practice since I had to do 90" of it. The yarn was easy to work with but I had to go down 2 needle sizes to get it the correct guage. I'm a beginner knitter and found this pattern easy enough to follow.

I have made 3 Tasseled Hoods for my cousin. They love it.
It takes two days for one Tasseled Hood. Thanks so much to Lion Brand Yarn. Sorry I don't take picture of them. Maybe next time.

I came by this hood last Christmas, and just fell in love with it. My 13-year-old cousim had asked me to make her a scarf, so I made this for her in an off-white, coconut color. After I was done, the hood looked a bit "pointy", a little too KKK, so I added a pompom at the tip and it looked great! But pompoms and tassels don't match too well in my opinion, so I added a pompom at the end to the braids, and it turn out to be the cutest little hood I've ever seen!

I had leftover Fisherman wool from another project, so instead of using Thick-n-Quick, I just used two strands of the Fisherman together...I love the results and this project cost me absolutely nothing!!!! I have never cabled before this, so I didn't even use a cable needle to make the hood, just a stitch holder that I already had...but I plan on buying a set the next time I'm at the craft store because cables no longer intimidate me and I'm looking for another great cabled pattern to further improve my skills!
