Everybody has one...

So I need y'all's opinion here. I knit this hat for a friend, but I'm afraid it didn't come out so hot. Something about the thick/thin yarn and the cable pattern seems to not work here. Am I crazy? I don't want to give a gift to a friend that is generally disliked by the public, so what do you think? Is this hat The Suck or The Smash?

Well, ya asked for it...the heavy weave is good for keeping snow off of your head. The hat would be a smash hit if two things happened.
1. It snowed about a foot.
2. The wearer SMILED!

Just a geezer opinion from...
Love,
Dad

i dig the overall chunkiness... the cable pulls off the different width/size/chunk of the yarn!

I think it's adorable. Very vintage looking.

I like!

Very cute, and I agree with Karel's description of having a bit of the vintage about it.

I continue to get constant compliments on my own bit of lovliness you gifted me with, btw!

lots of love...

I like it, but I agree you need to smile. I am impressed that you can do a cable knit. I am still at scarves and blankets.
