Product Description

This cable-framed leaf was such a lovely motif in a recent vest design that I've been obsessed with wanting to feature it in a hat! So, here is your new, wear-with-everything, cozy cabled hat.

The beige version starts with a deeply ribbed cuff that can be folded up or left unfolded for a slouchy look. The pink version has a simple ribbed band. Then both transition into five framed leaf panels that come together at the top into a pretty floral design. The seamless design is feminine, warm, and a pleasure to knit.

The pink version took less than a ball of yarn. Even the beige sample used only a little over 200 yards of worsted-weight wool, which you can probably find in your stash right now!

Co-ordinating fingerless gloves pattern - make a lovely set!
