Product Description

Gotta love a great cabled hat for its texture, warmth, and classic visual appeal! This one is fun and quick to knit as well, sporting an intricate cable perfect for both men and women.

It's knit from the bottom up in the round, for a seamless finish. Cable design is charted and written out.

Less than 200 yards needed for a hat.

TWO co-ordinating patterns, the #254 Riley Gloves AND the #258 Riley Scarf, are available to knit up with this hat as a fabulous gift set.

Fave/Queue this pattern on Ravelry.

Finished Blocked Measurements: 18 ¾" [47.5 cm] circumference above ribbed band, unstretched. 8 ¾" [22 cm] height. Easily stretches to fit 21-23" [53.5-58.5 cm] heads.

  1. Looks complicated -- but easy to follow

    Posted by Joan Shaull on 2nd Aug 2017

    This pattern was very clearly written, in my opinion. (I did not use the chart.) Let's face it, cables can be tedious but the results are worth it. The hat fits well and looks beautiful.
