Pattern Description:

Keep your head warm and your gauge swatches interesting with this inventive trio of slouch hats, knit in different yarn weights so you can find your perfect knitting mojo! Named for the goddesses Athena, Helen, and Minerva, these hats are constructed with an innovative finishing segment technique that provides some levity and is combined with a beautiful cable and eyelet pattern that results in a eye-catching yet cozy hat you'll love to show off. To top it all off, the hats use the same stitch patterns and yarn weights as their sister pullovers, so there's no need to make a separate swatch for the sweaters. Lovely and helpful? Now that's a gift from the goddesses!
