This is a fine hat for your favorite fella or filly. It has a snug fit and an unusual rib/cable pattern. Both written instructions and a chart are provided for working the 27-stitch, 23-round cable repeat. The hat is worked from the bottom up in the round. It is shown in a two-color version with contrast trim at the lower edge. We're using Rios from Malabrigo, which has enough beautiful tonal and variegated colorways to satisfy any hat wearer and the skeins are big enough that you'll have enough yarn to reverse the colors and knit a second hat! The hat is designed to stretch to fit most adult heads. It measures 8.25" high. It can be machine washed and dried flat.
The kit includes the pattern and the yarn. For this project you will also need:
- double point needles in US size 6 OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE
- (optional) 16" circular needle in US size 6
- cable needle
- stitch markers
- tapestry needle
