This hat will make you look like an accomplished knitter! A beautiful but easy 'faux' cable brim starts the detailing off and does not require cabling experience or a cable needle! The body is a simple stockinette stitch alternated with a purl in contasting color. The flower can be done 2 ways: stockinette stitch or garter - and either attached permanently or removed to wear on clothing or handbag!
Pattern updated 2/21/12 to reflect TWO versions now: the original DK weight and the new worsted weight with size 8 needles for a fast knit-up!!!
