A great cabled hat pattern that's versatile and quick is a no-brainer. You can knit it over and over again as a great gift item. This one is unisex and an interesting cable knit as well!
It started with a non-traditional cable design. The unexpected cable twists give this hat a modern appeal. Knit it up in a soft alpaca blend, as shown, for a luxe result.
Hat is knit from the bottom up entirely in the round. Decreases at the crown follow the general spirit of the cable and finish with a pleasing design at the top.
