The staghorn cable is the focal point of this slouchy hat worked in two color brioche. The dramatic patterning can be worked following written instructions or a chart. The pattern is written for fingering weight yarn so we are making our kits using Heritage from Cascade Yarns. Heritage is a blend of 75% superwash Merino wool and 25% nylon and is machine washable. This is an intermediate to advanced project but the pattern gives sources for online help for the techniques used. Finished hat measures 18.5" around and 9.75" high. Designed by Andrea Mowry.
The kit includes the pattern and yarn. For this project you will also need:
- 16" circular needle in size US 4 OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE
- either double point needles or32" or longer circular needle for magic loop in US size 4 for the crown of the hat
- stitch markers, including 1 removable marker
- tapestry needle
That hat is shown in natural and black, so if you would like these colors, order the kit above and your hat will be in colors 5601 Black and 5618 Snow. If you would like to pick your own color, please see our Heritage page to see the options. Then return to this page, order the kit, and specify your two color choices in the box above.
