Intarsia Cable Hat... A cute and funny success

I just finished this sample for a class I'm teaching at Close Knit this summer.  It's made to compliment the Saartje's Booties from the post below.  The cable is knit in using Intarsia with the three little "legs"  knit first and then added into the knitting.  I'm so happy with the way it turned out even though it kind of looks like a three eyed monster.  Charlie looks like a cute little girl with his long hair peeking out the bottom of it.  I'm working on a second sample in the new Rowan Pure Life for the Knitting Bee.  I can't wait to get the pattern written for everyone to try!

Cute pictures of mullet-boy. Can't we just call him Charlene and leave the curls?
