Chunky, intertwining cables and bobbles make for a pretty all-over design on this richly textured, slouchy hat.
This hat features an intricate trellis cable pattern with bobble clusters set against Reverse Stockinette stitch. A generous shape provides lots of slouchiness and warmth, and a ribbed band keeps the hat positioned nicely on your head.
It's knit from the bottom up entirely in the round on big needles. A fairly quick knit with interesting cable work. A fun hat to add to your winter wardrobe and show off your knitting skills. Great stash buster as well!
