This hat was inspired by and made for my good friend Mel, a bit of cuteness and a bit of funky sass all in one. The pattern can be worked in fitted or a slouchy version. The cabling and ribbing extend seamlessly from the bottom and continue all the way to the top of the decreases. The brim is neat and easy with no special techniques involved. It is simply picked up and worked all in one in the round.
The plastic mesh canvas used as the brim stiffener can be found at nearly any major craft store, usually near the yarn section.
The pattern contains both written and fully charted instructions for both versions as well as a template for the plastic insert in the brim.
18 sts and 20 rows = 4" in stretched cable pattern on larger needle. 15 sts and 20 rows = 4" in St st on larger needle.
By a happy accident I discovered knitting on a blog and knew immediately it was something I wanted to do. My combined love of art/design and mathematics/programming quickly led to me discovering their happy marriage in knitting design. Evenings usually find me working on my designs to the sounds of my husbandís Xbox in our home in Dallas, Texas.
