Product Description

A simple braided cable pattern makes this bold hat a real eye-catcher. Chunky cables all around, in a soft, lofty yarn that surrounds your head in stylish warmth.

Ribbed bottom band for great fit. AND this pattern only uses ONE SKEIN (actually, one hank) of yarn! It's also a quick and seamless knit on size 10.5 double-pointed needles.

    This is a great hat pattern! It took about 2 days to do, and the pattern was easy to follow. I'm actually on my second one - my mom likes mine so much she asked for one of her own!

  3. Loved this pattern!

    This was my first cable pattern other than a plain, repetitive twist. It might be the best project I have ever made in my 10 years of knitting. I found it difficult but doable and the instructions were clear enough for a total cable-newbie to follow. I have a big head (22.5") and it fits me perfectly. I am already planning to make one for my niece for Christmas.
