Another project from last year: Grace's hat

My daughter Grace saw a knit hat in a department store and asked me to get it for her.  What?  A hat I could knit?  So I knit it up for her as a gift last Christmas and she was very happy:

Project details:
Pattern:  Chunky Cable Hat by Emily Wessel/tin can knits; available free here.
Yarn:  Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky, colorway 17006 red; 1.7 skeins
Needles:  US 10 - 6.0 mm, US 10½ - 6.5 mm
I wanted the ribbing and cabling to line up better so I CO 72 and worked the ribbing as follows:
and then I worked the body: K6, P3.

When I finished according to pattern, the hat was a bit too short so I ripped back and added one more cable repeat before I began the decreases.
