This hat originally came from me playing around with different cable swatches. I loved this one so much; I wanted to feature it on something!
This hat was originally designed for a friend of mine who wears winter caps over visors and baseball caps, so I wanted a hat design that had enough positive ease to accommodate that. After some experimentation, this hat was born!
The cable band is knit first, working flat, and using an optional provisional cast on. The hat is then picked up from both edges of the cable band to form the ribbing and the crown of the hat.
This pattern has written instructions, and the stitch pattern is both charted and written on the Knotions Website.
The sample was knit in Queensland Collection Kathmandu Aran 100, which is a blend of 85% Merino, 10% Silk, and 5% Cashmere. If you’re substituting yarns, I’d suggested a merino or merino/silk blend.
