You can call this hat a delicious bouquet of various cables. It is knit in the round. The wide
band of 2x2 cabled rib allows for a snug fit. The main pattern resembles a flower made of
cables which effortlessly transition into more familiar cables which later taper at the crown.
Choose between the two versions: Beanie (A) or Slouch (B).
